CityMark Development is the prime example of the urban lifestyle and architecture that so many seek!

CityMark Development has built 4 condo projects in Downtown San Diego and has created a community of local followers! All four projects feature high ceilings, exposed concrete walls, and large loft layouts.  One important feature that CityMark communities are known for is incorporating walls of windows in many of their units. Together, these features give homes the spacious open layout that is so popular.

The four communities are also known for having low homeowner’s dues when compared to other buildings in Downtown San Diego that are of similar quality. None of the buildings include a door man, security, or swimming pool, but they do all have secured access and underground parking. Also, all of the buildings developed by CityMark include gas ranges and the gas is covered by the homeowner’s dues.

If you like natural light, open concept floor plans and unique architecture, CityMark communities are definitely a great starting place.

Aperture – 1494 Union, San Diego, CA 92101

Aperture is in a fantastic location in Little Italy, on the same block as Extraordinary Desserts! The building takes up 1/4th of the lot and features 86 condos spread out over 11 floors. The penthouse condos are very unique, as they are all 2 story townhouse style residences. The condos have very spacious layouts and very proportional bedroom sizes. Many of the balconies are also a generous size.

The building doesn’t have any amenities, but offers low homeowner’s dues. The clean modern design throughout the building is also very attractive. Many of the condos offer great city and some bay views.

Doma – 1750 & 1780 Kettner Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101

Doma is located one block west of the heart of Little Italy. The complex has a fitness facility, secured entry, underground parking, spa, and a great rooftop deck with BBQs and fantastic views of the bay. There is also a nicely landscaped central courtyard in the community giving it a “zen-like” feel.

The 1750 Kettner side of Doma is wood frame construction. Majority of the homes in this side of the building are 2 story townhouse style units. The building is only 4 stories, but offers great views from the condos on the west side of the building. Many of the homes in the courtyard feature generous sized balconies.

The 1780 Kettner portion is concrete and steel construction. It has the CityMark feel carried through the other 3 downtown communities, with high ceilings, exposed concrete, and the open loft feel. The building offers fantastic views from the west side, as well as the south side floors 5+. You will find majority of the homes in this side of the building have been customized with walls and built ins, as they were originally sold as loft spaces.

Fahrenheit – 1025 Island Ave, San Diego, CA 92101

Fahrenheit is in Downtown San Diego’s East Village and is located just 2 blocks from Petco Park. The building shares the lot with the Padre’s Parkade.  On the north side of the community, floors 1-6 are all 2 story residences. The top floor homes are all single level and feature extra high ceilings at 14 feet. On the west side of the building, floors 2-7 are all single level homes. The building has a very modern minimalist feel.

M2i – 527 10th Ave & 1050 Island Ave, San Diego, CA 92101

M2i is in East Village as well and is 3 blocks from Petco Park. This is the highest density CityMark project in Downtown San Diego. The complex features 2 separate lobby entrances, a large fitness facility, secure entry, under and above ground parking, as well as a rooftop deck with BBQs and a fireplace. The complex has a very well landscaped central courtyard with a tropical feel.

The building offers spacious homes, open concept floor plans, customizable layouts, and low homeowner’s dues. The townhomes on the first level feature reverse floor plans, where the living room, kitchen and dining areas are upstairs, while the bedrooms are downstairs.

The community has several popular business in the base, including Starbucks, Brooklyn Bagels, The District, and MAK Cleaners.
