San Diego's Best Owner Perks

Andrea Bennett | May 17, 2018 | Feature Features

Some of the best new residences in the city also come with incentives to move in. Think yacht shares, private cars and exclusive club membership. Here are four that are so great, we're thinking of moving!

Climb Aboard!
Downtown waterfront super-luxe residence Pacific Gate by Bosa tapped into our shared asset culture for amenity ideas. But don’t expect a special Uber lane: Sharing at Pacific Gate means a 45-foot-long yacht, Pacific Dream, to which every homeowner has access for cruising San Diego Bay. Residents of the two curved glass towers also have dedicated concierges, porter services, a private luxury car fleet, screening room, spa and even guest rooms for visitors—for when you love guests in theory but don’t necessarily want them staying in your penthouse. 888 W. E St., San Diego, 619.795.3612

Pizza on the Lido Deck
It’s not a cruise, it’s a downtown residence, but at Alexan ALX, events like Wine Wednesdays and hosted cooking classes at the outdoor kitchen’s wood-fired pizza oven might make you forget where you are. Dine in the club room or on the outdoor deck with its screening area. Not here for the pizza? You’ll probably love the rooftop zero-edge pool, game room, on-site bike repair, club lounge and pet spa. 300 14th St., San Diego, 619.764.5316

Join the Club
Muse La Jolla has only 16 residences, which range from over $1 million for a one-bedroom apartment to a record-setting 10.2 million penthouse. Living in the four-story modernist building designed by famed architects Ladd & Kelsey in the 1960s (of the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena and the California Institute for the Arts in Valencia) is, frankly, reward enough. After all, the impeccable living spaces include custom cabinetry by Pininfarina, kitchen walls of Taj Mahal granite and designer fixtures by Gessi—as well as sweeping Pacific views. The (major) bonuses are membership to La Jolla Athletic Club and exclusive membership to neighboring La Valencia’s new Spa La V; access to its ocean-front pool and even Muse La Jolla’s own special La Valencia room service menu. 1020 Prospect St., La Jolla

Built for Entertaining
Once considered to be over-the-top features like communal grilling areas and outdoor yoga terraces are now vital basics in newly built luxury residential buildings. And while plenty claim one or two lovely perks, Savina by Bosa went for volume. A massive, cabana-flanked pool terrace anchors one rooftop, and the shared space for residence totals more than 24,000 square feet. Aside from the fitness center and spa with swing loungers, there’s a massive, concierge-attended lobby; lounge with chef’s kitchen, billiards and entertaining veranda and even a dedicated pet retreat. 701 Front St., San Diego, 619.269.2188
