A San Diego Landmark Reemerges as a Residential Building

The Editors | June 6, 2019 | Home & Real Estate


Classic New York-style architecture and original period details meet modern design at this storied San Diego landmark. Downtown’s first high-rise building, and once its tallest, 625 Broadway was built in 1924 by real estate magnate John D. Spreckels and counts Comic-Con and the Bank of Italy among its former tenants. Now, the historic Spreckels Building is undergoing a transformation from offices to an exclusive new residential community that pays homage to the building’s past. Among its 231 well-appointed homes preleasing this summer, the prized penthouse loft-style residences boast coveted city and bay views, and original architectural features, including brick accents, 6-foot pane windows and soaring 20-foot ceilings. Other high-end amenities include a resident lounge, indoor greenhouse, yoga studio and fitness center.
