While in Bankers Hill this morning, I took photos of Vue on 5th, which is one of several new projects in Bankers Hill neighborhood of San Diego. Back in March, I toured the the building while under construction and uploaded floor plans, photos, and a video to my blog. Let’s start with a photo of the primary corner of the building taken from 5th Avenue at Nutmeg Street.
As I walked east towards Balboa Park, which is just a block away, I took the photo below, which shows the east facade covered in scaffolding. Out of the 45 units in this project, 5 will come luxurious, two-story penthouse condos. You can make out the sloped roof of on at the corner of the northeast corner.
The Market Place
In the photo below, you can see the neighbor to the south, the Market Place. Personally, I’ve never been inside this establishment, but to my surprise, it gets great reviews on Yelp! Customers rated it 4.5 stars at the time of this writing. Impressive.
So, what at first glance, appeared to be a down side, turns out to be a great place to grab a bite, buy some booze, or do a little of both!
Residents who live in the units on the south side will have incredible views of downtown and San Diego bay. You can even watch planes land at Lindbergh field. The best views will be from the penthouse on the southwest corner, which has panoramic views that stretch from Balboa Park to downtown, then to the Bay, and finally up to Hillcrest.
