As we see many young professionals and empty nesters flock to this ball park neighborhood, East Village Lofts have become quite the popular choice. People buy lofts because they like the creative spaces, open floor-plans, high ceilings, exposed concrete, and the lack of a cookie cutter feeling that many traditional high-rise condos offer. What makes a property a loft?
East Village Lofts are characterized by:
- Exposed concrete ceilings. Usually higher ceilings than most traditional condos as the ceilings are not dropped to hide fire sprinklers and duct work.
- Exposed duct work and plumbing
- An open floor plan with no interior walls creating bedrooms. Yes, lofts do have enclosed bathrooms.
- San Diego downtown lofts may include one or two stories. If there is a second floor, it usually hangs out over the first floor and opens up as if it were a balcony overlooking the first floor. This style of East Village Loft creates dramatically high ceilings in the main living space.
