Encompassing over 100 city blocks from 6th Street to 16th Street, East Village, also known as Ballpark District, is an up and coming neighborhood in downtown San Diego. Previously, the East Village housed warehouses and was known as an industrial complex, however, today, the East Village represents the largest neighborhood in downtown San Diego and represents years of growth to come for the city. Notable commercial developments in the East Village include Petco Park, home to the San Diego Padres, and construction is underway for the new Main Library, a 10 story 400,000 square foot landmark for the area. Gerson Real Estate and Development, under the direction of Mitchell Gerson, developed an entire city block on J Street, converting an old coffee roaster plant into a Crossfit Gym and the Mission Restaurant. More information on this development and the future of this city block can be found here.
Living and working in the East Village presents a vibe and culture of trendy urban living. The area is filled with contemporary and traditional residences and commercial architecture. New developments include lofts, condominiums, and penthouses for sale in the East Village. The Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge is an exciting development in the East Village as it will connect the San Diego Bay and Balboa Park, offering great access for residents.
