As downtown San Diego continues to boom, the city’s most luxurious residential tower yet has sold 50 percent of its units, according to a press release.
In its last phase of construction, Pacific Gate will stand among reportedly $6.4 billion projects in development in the waterfront neighborhood, according to Civic San Diego.
The 41-story tower rising at Pacific Highway and Broadway will comprise 215 two- and three-bedroom residences, priced from $1.1 million and ranging from 1,276 square feet to 2,608 square feet.
Designed by New York-based architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), the building is intended to mimic the fluid forms of the shoreline and the sea with a “double-nested curve with rolling facade and scrolling base,” as the website describes.
“The Pacific is expansive––it’s the biggest ocean in the world––so we wanted the glass to be floor-to-ceiling and curved, so that tenants could see the coast, the sky, and the full range of visual environment,” says Jamie Von Klemperer, president of KPF.
From the elevator lobbies and residential corridors, to the outdoor pool terrace and all of its luxury amenities, the entirety of Pacific Gate’s resort-style interior is thoughtfully designed by acclaimed interior designer Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), who are recognized for their work in the hospitality industry.
Each residence, personalized with one of three color schemes and lined with hardwood flooring throughout, is wired with smart home technology features, including lighting controls, an automatic window defogger in the master bathroom, and heated flooring. The Estate Collection, spanning levels 33 to 40, consists of only four residences per floor.
All residents have access to a chef concierge, a fitness room, a screening room, an outdoor pool terrace with cabanas, and an outdoor pet retreat, among many other conveniences––all of which are unparalleled in the area.
For sailors and sea-lovers, a shared boat program allows owners to reserve a boat to enjoy with friends and family. And a luxury car fleet is on site to rent if needed.
reIllustrious Barcelona-born artist, Jaume Plensa, will debut his next public art installation at Pacific Gates, with his “Pacific Soul” sculpture.
“It [Pacific Gate] will not only redefine the skyline, but help put Downtown San Diego on the world stage,” says Bemi Jauhal, director of sales and marketing for Bosa Development, which has developed nine other residential buildings in the city.
There are over 10,000 residential units planned for development throughout downtown San Diego in the next 10 years. Pacific Gate is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.
