Columbia District San Diego Condos: Bayside Electra The Grande Sapphire Tower

San Diego’s Columbia (watefront) District used to be mostly comprised of commercial buildings but in the past few years there has been mixed use developments of all sorts, including a variety of new high rise condo buildings along Pacific Beach Highway like Bayside, Electra, The Grande (all luxury high rise condos by BOSA Development) and Sapphire Tower along Kettner Boulevard.

The Santa Fe Depot which hosts commuter rail and trolley stations is also located in the Columbia District providing residents and visitors access to a wide variety of transportation options both to the south and north of the county.

The Columbia District is neighbored by the Seaport Village, the Manchester Hyatt hotel, the Marriott Hotel and Marina complex, the San Diego Convention Center, and a series of beautiful public parks.

Usually, you can find tourists wondering around the coastline’s maritime museum, navy boats or the various boat charters departing from the cruise boat terminal like whale watching and dinner boat excursions.

You will also find great entertainment and dining options in both the nearby the Seaport Village and Little Italy District as well as some great options along Pacific Highway on the bay.

Downtown’s Columbia San Diego condos are scattered among a varied selection of luxury high rise residential buildings. These include studios, lofts, 1 bedroom, 1 plus den, 2 bedroom, 2 bed plus den and 3 bedroom condo residences. Please browse below for more information on each residential building, the floor plans in each building, photos, reviews and more relevant information.
