San Diego’s Newest Urban Luxury: Oceanside Terraces

Share

by Roberta Murphy

Oceanside Terraces
Oceanside Terraces

For 11 days straight, we have been working in a makeshift sales office at Oceanside Terraces, the new luxury midrise residence in downtown Oceanside.

The office consists of a small table, two plastic chairs and a 2-drawer filing cabinet. Cardboard is taped over the lobbys travertine floors, and we have to compete with workers for elevator space. Theres no coffee maker, no copier and even paperclips are in short supply.

And nobody’s complaining.

We think we are in heaven, because we are dealing with amazed guests and interested buyers all day long. Many step off the new Sprinter train next door, having come for a day trip from inland Escondido, Valley Center, San Marcos or Vista. They cant resist checking out Oceansides version of luxurious high rise living. Others come from Los Angeles, Orange County, North Dakota, Connecticut, Manhattan, Tucson, Las Vegas and Scottsdale and are no less amazed.

The most excited guests, though, are Oceanside residents, who watched the construction of Oceanside Terraces over the last few years

They understand the significance of this six-story multi-use building with prime retail on the first floor, offices on the second, and residences and penthouses on the fourth through sixth floors. They know that downtown Oceanside is becoming a walkable community and is on its way to becoming a shining model for urban living. They also know they have 3.5 miles of great beaches, a balmy year round climate and some of the friendliest people in San Diego County.

They are also savvy and know that Oceanside Terraces offers the coastal urban lifestyle so many buyers are seeking:

  1. They want spacious single level homes large enough for guests, entertaining and long-term living.
  2. They want close proximity to the beach. (How about 400 yards?)
  3. They want a walkable community that offers fine dining, shopping, museums and farmers markets.
  4. They want secure buildings, adequate covered parking and large lockable storage for bicycles, surfboards and other toys.
  5. They want to be close to public transportation. (How about a train and transit center on the adjacent block?). They want an easy train ride to downtown San Diego to see Padres games, San Diego Civic Center theater productions, or perhaps enjoy dinner or a day in San Diegos Old Town or Gaslamp District. The appeal of more distant travel also beckons as a possibility with Amtrak.

And though it may surprise some of the real estate doomsayers and bubble bloggers, we are happy to report that the Oceanside Terraces are selling. So far this week, we have reservations from one Carlsbad and two Oceanside families. Others are returning for second and third visits.

Oceanside Terraces offer floorplans that range from 1730 to almost 2600 square feet. Prices range from the high $600s to $1.7 million and many boast sparkling ocean views.

We may not be able to offer you a cup of coffee, but please feel free to stop by 301 Mission (at the corner of Cleveland) and well happily show you what Oceanside Terraces has to offer. We are open 7 days a week from 11-4.

And if you can remember, please bring a few paperclips with you.
