Measuring hundreds of yards wide, Coronado’s famed beach has been ranked #1 in the country for a number of reasons, including its undeniably sparkly sand, Mediterranean climate and gorgeous surroundings. Whether on a romantic getaway or your annual family vacation – or if you’re lucky enough to call yourself a local San Diegan, Coronado is your ideal spot for fun in the sun year-round, but especially in the summer months. Offering a plethora of outdoor activities, shopping, dining and site-seeing, nothing beats the Coronado Village in the summertime.
Arguably one of the most popular draws to Coronado every year is its famous Fourth of July celebration. Festivities start early in the morning and the crowd comes even earlier! Family and friends begin to stake their territory Orange Avenue as early as five AM in effort to get the best views of the parade that is like none other in San Diego County. It is truly a slice of Americana and a hallmark exhibit of Coronado’s small town pride. Following the parade, take a leisurely stroll over to Spreckles Park in the center of town for a free concert and complete the day’s festivities by taking in an incredible fireworks display over Glorietta Bay. Watch from the Coronado Golf Course for a great view! For a lineup of the day’s festivities, visit www.ecoronado.com/4th. (Tip: if you are coming from Downtown, take the ferry, as parking is essentially non-existent the day of. Click here for the ferry schedule: http://www.coronado.ca.us/egov/documents/1407174367_71828.pdf)
Additionally, you can enjoy music in the park every Sunday evening throughout the summer, as Coronado Summer Concert Series kicks off at the end of May and runs through the start of September. See below for this summer’s lineup!
Aside from Coronado’s famous Fourth celebration, the island is home to countless activities for adults and children year-round. Many families from out of state (and from all over the world) come to Coronado to spend their entire summer, as the island is one of the most beautiful and family-friendly locales in Southern California.
The below list is simply a handful of fun ideas to try this summer or next time you are in Coronado:
The Hotel Del Coronado is likely one of the most popular attractions in Coronado, regardless of whether you are a guest or not. This historic hotel was built in 1888 and has since played host for countless Hollywood A-listers, Presidents and other notable public figures. Simply walk through the grounds along the private beach to experience the history and magic that makes the Del one of the most special resorts in Southern California. Contact the hotel’s “Experience Planners” to secure a private bonfire for you and your family and friends, where staff will provide all you need for a custom S’mores roast in the evening. For another unforgettable experience, visit during the holiday season when the hotel hosts an outdoor ice skating rink located right on the beach!
Located along the stunning Glorietta Bay, the Coronado Golf Course is rated one of the top public golf courses in the nation, and with 18 holes starting at just $35, this is a true steal and a great way to take in the incredible sights of Coronado Island.
The Coronado Recreation Center offers numerous kids camps and classes for residents, local San Diegans and visitors alike, including: cooking, art, aquatics, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, golf, tennis and more. Additionally, the Rec Center offers many classes and sports for adults and also has a gym on-site that overlooks the Glorietta Bay. Classes do fill up early, so check out the website to sign up as soon as possible: www.coronado.ca.us.
A most unique way to take in the sights of Coronado is by taking a gondola ride through the Coronado Cays. Bring a bottle of wine and soak up the views of the Downtown San Diego skyline and the gorgeous custom homes as you ride along the water lanes of the Cays. Note: chocolate covered strawberries and serenades are complimentary, but you’ll need to bring your own favorite beverage of choice.
The Ferry Landing is not only where you hop the ferry to Downtown San Diego. The area is a bit of a tourist hotspot, but the location offers breathtaking views of the skyline, a beach area where kids can play, numerous restaurants, boutiques and a local coffee shop. (The photo ops alone are worth a visit.) The Farmer’s Market takes place every Tuesday from 2:30pm-6pm, where you can pick up everything from locally-produced cheese to organic fruits and vegetables straight from the farm.
Last, but not least, take a stroll along Orange Avenue to check out the boutiques, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries and more. Check out what’s showing at Lambs Players Theater, located in the historic Spreckles building. The theater presents an annual five-play season and offers great views from virtually every seat in the house.

Columbia District, Downtown San Diego
The Electra is Downtown’s tallest residential tower, and arguably one of the most stunning and luxurious high-rise buildings. Built by Bosa Development in 2008, the Electra resides on the corner of Broadway and Kettner Blvd. The Electra has had a rich history in Downtown as it was once the San Diego Gas & Electric Station B Powerplant.
In 2008 Bose Development transformed the old SDG&E Powerplant into a beautiful residential high-rise tower; hence the name: The Electra.
Electra San Diego HD Video
Electra’s location in the Columbia District has been a little bit isolated from nearby restaurants and shopping, but recent new developments and public improvements are quickly changing this location into one of Downtown’s premier hot spots.
One of the new developments that will have a direct impact on property values at Electra is the new Bosa tower currently under construction on what is known as Parcel 9. In past months, there has been a of “fear of the unknown” attitude with buyers considering purchasing property at Electra, because of potential view obstruction from the new tower. The new tower will undoubtedly impact views to Westerly facing properties in Electra, but Bosa’s architectural renderings and elevations of the project indicate that the tower will be set on a diagonal, with the narrow edge of the tower facing the waterfront, which will likely have the least amount of negative impact as possible. What is certain, is the Parcel 9 project will be a dynamic and beautiful building on a landmark corner of downtown, that will enhance its surroundings.
Because of the stratospheric prices that the new project will command, it should set the bar for pricing Downtown which should increase value of properties that surround it, including the Electra.
Electra Condo Sales Snapshot
The following details the past 30 days of sales at Electra in Downtown San Diego:
- 8 ACTIVE LISTINGS
- 8 PENDING SALES (in Escrow)
- 9 SOLD
There has been a tremendous amount of turnover at Electra in recent months. In fact, there has been 12 sales in Electra in the past 6 moths, and it looks as if the overall trend is on the rise. The selling prices of course vary based on views, size, and finishes, but we have seen a per foot selling price range from as low as $344 SP/Sq Ft all the way up to $927 SP/Sq Ft, with an Average of $601 SP/ Sq Ft. * (SP/Sq Ft= Selling Price per Square Foot)
With all the public improvements happening, such as the Lane Field Project, The North Embarcadero Phase I, The New Waterfront Park, The Headquarters at Seaport District, and now the New Bosa Project that is underway, the whole area is becoming Downtown’s biggest buzz, and the Electra very well may be the best consumer opportunity in 2015.

Craig is a highly respected member in the Real Estate and San Diego communities alike, so to be invited to appear on both of his shows is a great honor”, Dannecker was quoted as saying.

Downtown San Diego has a very limited supply of true “Loft Style” condos. Defining features like 18 foot ceilings, wide open voluminous spaces and floor to ceiling windows are a rare commodity. The essence of this masterful Little Italy condo includes abundant natural light, circulating bay breezes and sweeping views.
Consider this your perfect condo in Downtown San Diego. Thinking of a pied-a’terre or second home? For convenience, location and an abundance of things to do, this one can’t be beaten!
Doma Condo #305 (at 1780 Kettner Boulevard) offers all of this, and so much more!
Best Condos in Little Italy
Doma Lofts is an 8 story “concrete and steel” condo building. Each homeowner lives in a well insulated cube–no noise from neighbors, hallways or elevators. Floors 1, 3 and 5 are two story lofts. This beautiful listing occupies the cool northeast corner of the building. From various locations in the home, views extend from San Diego Bay to the San Diego Skyline.
The nuts and bolts of this amazing home include a large master bedroom with sitting room, 2 beautiful full bathrooms, a high end kitchen and two distinct living areas. Its 1,394 sf feel much larger because of the high ceilings and windows. The large wrap-around patio is a perch to enjoy sunsets over the Bay or the street scene 30 feet below. It’s truly space to be experienced–proof that floorplans and square footage don’t define a living space!
The condo includes features rarely seen in urban life. For example, a large, locked storage space/workshop is deeded to the property. The space feels like a full basement–massive amounts of storage and work space. The two parking spaces are NOT TANDEM and are wide enough that door dings can be avoided.
A second home in San Diego’s most Dynamic Neighborhood?
Since Doma was built 10 years ago, the north side of Little Italy has become increasingly desirable. India Street, the commercial center of the neighborhood, has enough Italian eateries packed into 4 blocks to fill your calendar for a month and never repeat! Recently however, the trend has been to more diverse food choices. Check out Ramen at Underbelly, Seafood at Ironsides and the chef driven samplings at PrepKitchen for a taste of not-Italian Little Italy foods.
This Little Italy Loft is also just one block removed from Little Italy’s Saturday morning Mercato. This is a weekly farmers market and artisan gathering filling five blocks. The neighborhood is also host to numerous festivals and concerts throughout the year.
This is the real measure of Doma Condo#305. The atmosphere and buzz of a neighborhood. To be five minutes from the airport. And in an authentic neighborhood. Viva San Diego!
Doma # 305 is listed at $789,000. The monthly HOA is $526. Please call or text Downtown San Diego Realtor David Manes for showings. firstname.lastname@example.org or (616)299-4760.
Among Downtown San Diego condos, it is generally acknowledged that Bayside Condos set the standard for quality. From the moment you walk into the building and are greeted by a competent, professional concierge and take in the stunning aesthetics of the Bayside lobby, the standard of excellence is set.
Marble floors, millwork and mirrors, and 16 foot chandeliers present an atmosphere that is both casual and luxurious. This theme carries through to common areas, amenities and individual homes at Bayside Condos.
Bayside Condo #1004
Newly listed, Bayside #1004, provides a perfect platform for life in Downtown San Diego. Located on the building’s southeast corner over 100 feet in the air, the 1,462 square foot condo offers abundant sunshine and fabulous city and water views. The home’s entry hallway provides a gallery for the homeowner’s art. It also separates the “bedroom wing” from the home’s primary living areas.
The living area is a great room setting with a large island dividing the kitchen, from a generous dining room and panoramic corner living room area. Bayside condos are obviously centered around striking kitchen designs. This home features imported Snadero cabinetry in the kitchen that have a very contemporary feel of darkly stained wood and steel pulls.
The developer truly went beyond the standard by sourcing the kitchen appliances from the best manufacturers, including Viking and Miele. Caesar Stone countertops and backsplashes contribute to both functionality and visual appeal.
Two well proportioned bedrooms are provided. The master, with a California King bed provides lots of space to move around. The large walkin closet also has numerous builtins. The master bath is finished in luxurious marble, with the same Italian cabinetry as the kitchen. It includes both a standup shower and soaking tub.
The second bedroom is beautifully sized, and located only 2 steps from the guest bath. Also rarely seen in downtown San Diego condos, the home has a large laundry room–not just a closet for washer and dryer. It features full size Whirlpool appliances.
And amenities second to none
On Bayside’s third floor residents and their guests enjoy a complete package of amenities. The pool and spa deck is equipped with numerous seating and lounging areas. It is surrounded by a beautiful outdoor kitchen and party space. The Bayside gym is large, clean and well equipped.
Throwing a party? Facilities include a catering kitchen, community room (with 4 flat screen TVs), a pool table and a variety of conversation areas. A few steps away is the “wine room,” a conference/meeting room AND theater. You’re never constrained or limited to the walls of your condo at Bayside!
Ideally located for Downtown San Diego
Bayside is the northern most of the condos located in the Columbia District. Its location is in the “front row” of condos, nearest the Embarcadero and the excitement of the new development on the waterfront. Two new parks are being built just across the street on the grounds of San Diego’s County Admin building.
Now, Bayside residents also find themselves only steps away from Downtown San Diego’s newest entertainment district, The Headquarters.
Bayside #1004 is listed at $849,000. The HOA fee is $763/month.
