Aperture- Little Italy
One of our newest listings in the desirable Downtown San Diego Neighborhood of Little Italy is 1494 Union #1009. This is a Penthouse Loft on the top two floors of the Aperture community which personifies “Urban Chic”.
Upon entering into the intimate Aperture community, you will notice the minimalist design emphasis. An abundance of exposed concrete, metal, and glass are profound features that make up the character of this contemporary mid-rise building.
Aperture was built in 2007 by Citymark Development, a local San Diego group responsible for some of the more compelling mid-rise loft buildings. The building is an 11 story mid-rise with a total of 86 residential units, and is located in a prime Little Italy location. The Aperture community has no amenities, which keeps the monthly HOA dues to a minimum (Under $500/ month).

Residence #1009 is an outlier of sorts to the community on several levels. Of the 86 total units, Residence 1009 is located on the top 2 floors, which is shared by only 10 other suites. Of the 11 Penthouse Suites, there are only 6 that have Westerly Exposure, with views looking at the Bay & North Embarcadero. Only three of these Penthouse Suites are unencumbered by the 350 West Ash Building to the South, and Residence 1009 is one of them.
But it’s not just the views that make Aperture 1009 so distinctive…
Aperture 1009 is truly a one-of-a-kind loft penthouse that has a floorplan unlike any other in the building. With approximately 1718 sq ft of interior space spanning on two levels, one can enjoy a comfortable lifestyle, with great separation of space.
Downstairs, you enter into a small foyer that features a powder room for guests. Then the loft opens up into the living room & dining room area, with the kitchen off to the right. The kitchen is set to a linear configuration and has a prominent island that affords great usable counter space. The living room, kitchen, and dining area flow naturally together as functional space, making entertaining in this loft very accommodating.
Immediately, you will notice the attention to detail with the architectural design that features an abundance of exposed concrete, to compliment the 11′ ceilings, elegant wood floors set on a diagonal, and over sized windows that draw you out to the well proportioned 100 sq ft balcony.
Life is good: Sitting on the balcony, watching sailboats and sunsets!
Upstairs: You notice the rich wood floors that continue to the mezzanine and den area of the home, and comfortable carpeted areas in the two spacious bedrooms. The master suite is truly grand with a generous walk in closet and en suite bath/spa. The guest bedroom is also spacious and can accommodate a king size bed. Both bedrooms feature spectacular bay views, and nighttime fireworks shows from Sea World!
1009 at Aperture also coveys with two premium individual parking spaces and a unusually large storage unit. Currently the owner leases two additional motorcycle spaces at a nominal monthly fee.
In summary, Aperture 1009 is unlike any other property currently on the market in downtown San Diego. If you are a buyer who is looking for something spacious, bold, and elegant, look no further than Residence #1009 at Aperture.
