Condos on Cortez Hill
Living in Cortez Hill has it’s benefits. It is the quietest neighborhood in downtown and has less traffic and retail businesses. It is primarily a residential neighborhood, but has a few small restaurants, retail stores and even a few boutique Hotels.
Cortez Hill is the home of Tweet Street Park, a linear park that runs along the Interstate 5 Freeway corridor where 7th, 8th and 9th avenues all dead end at Date Street. It’s a great park to walk your dog or if you have small children there is even a nice play structure for them to exhaust all that energy.
The Park is Named Tweet Street Park because of one it features artistically designed bird houses that were put in place to attract San Diego’s native birds like Bewick’s Wren. It also features park benches, winding paths and even a series of colorfully designed fire hydrants for Fido or Fifi to enjoy.
Views from Cortez Hill are fantastic because you are already elevated above the city and need not be on a very high floor to enjoy fantastic views. One of the other benefits of Cortez Hill Condos is that they are not as expensive as Little Italy, The Marina, Columbia or most of East Village.
Condos on Cortez Hill can be purchased for as little as $250,000 for a studio and most one bedroom condos will run from the high $200’s through the mid $300’s.
