Is IDEA1 The Future Of How We’ll Live, Work & Create In San Diego?

IDEA1, a new mixed-use community developed by Lowe, LaSalle Investment Management and I.D.E.A. Partners, will welcome its first residents on November 10th.

The completion of this project is an important step to realizing the IDEA District’s vision of becoming San Diego’s innovation, design, education, arts and technology hub and its goal to create thousands of design and tech jobs across 35 city blocks in Downtown San Diego’s Upper East Village.

It’s also a fascinating step in the development of a new model of how we’ll live, work, and participate in our community in San Diego.

The apartments at IDEA1 are available in a variety of floor plans including live/work lofts, one and two-bedrooms and penthouses. Units are available in four different color schemes with modern design, comfortable layouts and quality finishes.

Specially designed to maximize daylight, each unit comes with up to 12’ ceilings, breathtaking city views, vinyl wood plank flooring, high-end cabinets, designer quartz countertops in kitchen and bath, barn door-style closet doors and full-size frontload washer and dryers.

Residents also have access to the 2,000 square foot exercise room, rooftop clubhouse, outdoor deck, bike repair shop and gravity-defying water tower spa that overlooks the Downtown San Diego skyline and bay.

Young Hickory, a café that offers local coffee and craft beer, will open its second location in IDEA1 and will serve causal breakfast and lunch options. It will occupy 1,577 square feet near the corner of 13th Street and F Street.

Lola 55 is a new fast-casual gourmet taco shop that will occupy another of the retail spaces at IDEA1. Executive chef/partner Andrew Bent trained with Luis Arellano at Criollo in Oaxaca, Mexico and delivers inspired food at affordable prices. Both plan to open in early 2018.

IDEA1 also have a special place for art lovers because it features eight specially commissioned public art pieces featuring both local and international artists and an onsite gallery with rotating exhibitions.
