[Most of the links in this section will open a new page from a separate website.]

California: About 175 years ago. As the San Diego community grew in the new state of California, a government surveyor named Andrew Gray (1820-1862) recognized that the best place for a seaside city was by the bay. William Heath Davis (1822-1909), from San Francisco, agreed. Davis and a small group of businessmen purchased one hundred and sixty acres (up to what is now Front and Broadway), for just over two-thousand dollars. They named it New Town (as to differentiate it from Old Town), and planned out fifty-six blocks around downtown's first park, Pantoja Plaza, named for Spanish explorer Don Juan Pantoja y Arriaga, who first surveyed & charted San Diego Bay in 1782. Pantoja Park still remains today, in the Marina District surrounded by condos such as Park Row, Marina Park, The Watermark and Columbia Place. The park is registered as the 7th San Diego Historic Landmark. Davis purchased 14 prefabricated houses, built in New England, and also constructed a wharf and warehouse in preparation of the anticipated residents and shipping opportunities. Unfortunately, an economic depression followed. While events of his day did not permit Davis to achieve his dream, his ideas were a premonition as to what would occur in years to come. Of the original fourteen houses, one still exists at the corner of Fourth and Island, now a museum by the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation.

Alonzo Erastus Horton (1813-1909) purchased 960 acres of New Town within one month of arriving in San Diego. Total cost: $264, or 27.5¢ per acre. Horton created a grid of streets with small blocks, without alleys, allowing for a larger number of (more valuable) corner lots to be sold. The first real estate boom was underway! The price of downtown lots doubled and tripled over and over. New Town was established as the physical, social and economic hub of San Diego. Horton House, built where the U.S. Grant Hotel is now located, was one of the finest hotels of the day. In addition to being president of the first Bank of San Diego, he also donated land for a small town square that became Horton Plaza Park.

San Diego's first electric street lights were installed downtown in 1886, and trolley lines began operating in 1888, with over thirty-seven miles of track. Elegant office buildings dotted Fifth Avenue where the region's business occurred during the day. South of Market Street, however, several blocks of bawdy houses, gin joints, gambling halls and opium dens, known as the Stingaree district, provided the nightlife. The area today is part of the historic Gaslamp Quarter.

With his Tombstone days behind him, Wyatt Earp (1848-1929) showed up in San Diego, investing heavily from 1885 to 1887. Earp owned or leased four saloons and gambling halls; the most famous was the Oyster Bar, located in the Louis Bank Building on Fifth Avenue.

The late 1890s ushered in a difficult period for San Diego. The city's struggling economy owed much of the following recovery to a wealthy businessman named John D. Spreckels, who made his fortune in his father's sugar business in Hawaii. Spreckels came to downtown in 1887 for a visit from his home in San Francisco. He made his visit permanent. In downtown, Spreckels was responsible for a great deal of growth. At one time, he owned most of the acreage south of Broadway. He purchased the streetcar system and changed it from horsepower to electricity. He also bought The San Diego Union and Tribune newspapers (merged in 1992). San Diego's cultural life benefited from his accomplishments as well, including the building of the landmark Spreckels Theatre. He also built the Hotel San Diego (Video: Demolished in 2006), and the Bank of America Building at Sixth and Broadway in 1927, the last building of any significance constructed until the 1970s, when interest in redevelopment in downtown San Diego resumed. Spreckels is remembered as "One of America's few great "Empire Builders" who invested millions to turn a struggling, bankrupt village into the beautiful and cosmopolitan city San Diego is today."

Here is a link to an old Centre City Development Corporation (CCDC) Map, listing many of the then completed, planned, and planned but never built projects from the early 2000s, when most of the Internet wasn't as sophisticated as today. It may be interesting to some to view the developer renderings of the buildings.

Thank you for visiting SDCONDO, San Diego's original (since 1999) website resource for owners, buyers, and sellers in downtown San Diego. SDCONDO displays all the relevant and current information on the downtown San Diego market. As you have noticed, my website goes beyond the basics of the very general content provided by other real estate websites. I offer detailed information about our downtown San Diego real estate market, neighborhood descriptions (Little Italy - Embarcadero - Gaslamp - East Village), maps, walk scores,  and so much more. Downtown San Diego a great place to call home, I should know; It has been my home since 2001, as a resident in the Embarcadero, Marina, Little Italy neighborhoods. Chances are that the other "experts" you find on the Internet either do not live in Downtown San Diego. Should you work with someone who is not wholly vested in Downtown San Diego?

*Notes:

I do this by hand, so occasionally I have a typo or haven't added/removed a particular condo. If you do find a typo, I would not mind if you point it out to me.
A square foot advisory suggests that you need to be vigilant in your measurement of the property, to make sure the interior space matches the number you've been told it is. I can help you measure if you need assistance.
I do not include for sale by owner, or when seller has contracted for MLS entry only, or auction listings, or various random other units for sale.
The HOA dues shown are subject to change, and is a monthly fee.
Number of parking spaces is subject to buyer verification. T=Tandem, V=Valet, G=Garage.
HOA amount may include special assessments, if any.
Payment estimate is for people putting down ten percent of the purchase price.
Cost indications above are for P&I (principle loan payment (P) and interest payment (I)) only. For the payment calculation, I've used a down payment of 10%. If your down payment is different, your P&I will be different. If your down payment is less than 20%, you will have a PMI payment (Private Mortgage Insurance) as well. I will use current market rates, though as rates change, I do not change all of the properties to reflect that (only as I have time). In general, the interest rate quoted by a lender is lower than the actual APR (Annual Percentage Rate) you may receive. The APR reflects more than the simple interest rate; it also considers fees you would pay to obtain the loan, and is a method you can use to compare financing alternatives more easily (Regulation Z of the Federal Government Truth-in-Lending Act). You should speak with a professional lender to obtain more accurate figures, as the above payment indications are estimates only. Click the following links: General Table w/ Various Rates. If you do not have a mortgage professional, I would be happy to provide you with a list of lenders in which I know to be reputable. Currently using 3.75%, or 4.25% for Jumbo as May 2020.


Some of the data above is from San Diego Multiple Listing Service (SDMLS) for October 01, 2021 to today, and represents properties listed for sale by various brokers (see Listing Office).
