News > San Diego Lofts - Small to Large

Looking for a San Diego loft but think you can't afford one because you are on a budget? After all, lofts are huge so they must be expensive, right? The good news is that just because lofts are open with high ceilings, they can be on the smaller side and, therefore, more affordable.  Another upside of smaller lofts is that it is easier to make them feel inviting and homey. San Diego has plenty of loft options to fit your lifestyle and financial needs.

The Fahrenheit lofts is one example of a community that offers smaller units. This 77-unit building has homes starting at 730 square feet and a choice of one- or two-bedroom floor plans. The majority of residences are single level; however larger two-level units are available. Residences at Fahrenheit meld modern design aesthetics such as sealed concrete and exposed duct work with natural light and vivid colors to create a more comfortable feel. Many units feature high ceilings, granite countertops, wood or stone tile flooring, and outdoor patio areas.

Residents of Fahrenheit enjoy city views to the west, north, and east. Corner and west-facing units feature the most sunlight; however all residents take advantage of Fahrenheit’s central downtown location. The building is only two blocks from Petco Park as well as within walking distance of all the restaurants and clubs of the East Village and Gaslamp Quarter.  Access to three major freeways is less than a mile away, and the Park and Market Trolley stations are nearby.

Smart Corner lofts is another loft option in the East Village that has "micro lofts" at under 500 feet.  It's not all about budget options here, though.  The higher floor lofts had spectacular city views outside the bank of floor-to-ceiling windows.

If your needs and budget allow for larger options, Parkloft condos can exceed 3,000 square feet in size. Many lofts are large enough to install walls to create custom-yet-conventional living areas, or buyers can opt to leave the floor plan open to maintain a loft ambiance. Units feature ten-foot-plus ceilings with exposed duct work and conduits. Residents enjoy floor-to-ceiling wood-framed windows and large decks, complete with gas lines for outdoor grilling, with views directly into Petco Park from many units.

The 11-story, 120-unit Parkloft is located in the vibrant East Village neighborhood of downtown San Diego. Residents are within walking distance to neighborhood bars and restaurants as well as the nightlife of the Gaslamp Quarter. Use the 24-hour concierge service to plan an evening and make reservations for outings throughout San Diego. Workout in the exercise room; relax in the landscaped courtyard with water feature; and entertain friends in the communal barbeque area. Also included is underground secured parking and private storage areas.

Fahrenheit and Parkloft are only two of the many options available in the San Diego market. We’ve got more San Diego lofts for sale that might fit your needs. Contact us to help you find your dream place!
