Harbor Club | 100 & 200 Harbor Drive

Harbor Club San Diego…

…Condominium Towers stand as a focal point of the San Diego skyline and remain one of the most recognizable architectural features of Downtown. 

The two 41 story buildings dominating the block from 2nd to 3rd  Avenue were built in 1992, and are central to almost all of the residential, recreational and tourism on San Diego Bay.  Adjacent to the Martin Luther King Promenade, the San Diego Convention Center, anchoring the Gaslamp and a very short walk to the Marina Marriott, Manchester Grand Hyatt or Petco Park; is there a better location in San Diego? 

The lifestyle at  Harbor Club is an urban dream.  Walking, jogging or biking is at your front door.  Mortons Steakhouse (the Chicago institution) is your lobby bar.  Service and staff are 5 star.  And, in 2010, Harbor Club remodeled and upgraded it’s fifth floor amenities.  Gym and pool are first class.  As a place to relax or entertain, the setting is idyllic, day and night.

Harbor Club San Diego Condos – Best Features

Location, location, locationit’s real estate 101, could there be anything more important.  In the early 90s, the developer was years ahead of all other commercial development.  Downtown San Diego has grown around Harbor Club, and the Marina District is the most valuable of downtown neighborhoods.

Three homes per floor – owning a Harbor Club apartment at every level is like living on the Penthouse level.  There are never more than 3 homes per floor!  Two 2 Bedroom homes (including the iconic “bubble unit”), and one 1 Bedroom.  There is an aura of quiet and privacy living at Harbor Club.

AmenitiesAt Harbor Club this includes much more than a pool and gym.  You’ll notice immediately that there is a sense of arrival for residents and guests.  Lobbies and concierge service are welcoming and comfortable.

ViewsThis is truly front row living in Downtown.  The Convention Center is the only obstruction to views that stretch from Tijuana to Point Loma.  Walls of windows and patio living compliment thoughtful architecture at Harbor Club.

  Dave’s take on Harbor ClubIt’s 2011–that means we’re two decades removed from the 90s.  Taste in kitchens, bathrooms, carpets and color pallets have changed.  Not all of the homeowners at Harbor Club have updated their homes.  As Forest Gump’s mother would have said about a box of chocolates, when opening a door at The Harbor Club “you never know what you’re gonna get.” 

You’re going to find either a beautifully upgraded home–bright and airy, with new floors, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and bright shiny bathrooms.  Or, a galley kitchen behind a narrow arch and deep pile beige carpets.  Of the 12 residences that have sold in the past 18 months, there have been an equal number of each.  As the list of sold homes shows, there has been huge swings in prices and cost per square foot at Harbor Club.

Buyers have a terrific opportunity in the next few years here, I think.  There is very little new construction inventory in SD on the horizon.  Harbor Club is a classic, in an unsurpassed location.  The low prices that buyers have received have surprised many of us in the local real estate community.  Be ready for an opportunity here.  It may be something you’ll remodel and make your own.  It’s also possible that an exceptional home will pop up and be available for only a few days (see 2402 in the chart above).
