The Egyptian – The Building
The Egyptian encompasses 80 residential condominiums of stylish, contemporary design. This 7-story building, constructed of concrete and steel, and cool, green glass is named after the historic Fox Egyptian Theater of 1931 as pieces of the original theater are incorporated into the design creating a visually inspiring masterpiece. The developer, City Mark is genius in creating a perfect blend of old and new, utilizing such pieces as the original box office, Egyptian carvings from the exterior facade, rod iron gates, and “the dungeon”, a basement that was once used for storing films. City Mark effectively built intriguing, ultra modern urban residences while beautifully assimilating the character of the old theater.
Architectural details include double walls and airspace between units, and 8” of airspace between floors for quiet, peaceful living. The lobby is delightfully imaginative with textured concrete walls, tall aluminum trees, ceiling flower lights, multi-colored tiles, and large aluminum planters.
Hillcrest – Metro San Diego
The building is situated between Balboa Park and central Hillcrest just steps to vibrant city life and attractions like San Diego Zoo, Old Globe Theatre, museums, Sprouts Farmers Market, Trader Joes, and Starbucks, and where the neighborhood offers an endless supply of shopping, dining, art, culture, music, yoga, and much more. 2 parking spaces included.
