What is a live-work condo and where can I find them in Downtown San Diego?  A live/work condo or loft is what is commonly known as a commercial condo.  They come in many shapes and sizes, but usually feature a ground floor store front retail space with a loft or living component above or behind the retail space.  Many of the high-rise and mid-rise buildings have live/work condos and lofts in East Village and Little Italy.

    We have one for rent in East Village close to the Ivy Hotel. It is approximately 1250 sq/ft. How much space are you looking for and what type of business will you operate there?

    Is this live work loft in Fahrenheit available still?

  4. Chad says:

    Sorry Mo, this one sold shortly after we posted the blog. It was a great investment and of course a cash buyer swooped it up quickly. The sweet deals of 2010-2011 are gone, but there’s still some good buys.
