Sophistication and Variety 

This is one of the biggest districts downtown. It also has the most housing. It feels a lot like New York City in that you move to a neighborhood then you get to know the locals and become regulars in your nearby hangout. It has a mom and pop feel to it.

Homes ranging from lofts, to studios, with nearby galleries and shops can be found here. At one time a warehouse district, East Village is comprised of charming urban residences and offices in an exciting setting.

As it continues to develop , the East Village will maintain it’s big city vibe. Some of the great features in East Village are PETCO Park; the new Central Library (currently under construction); San Diego City College, the New School of Architecture,  and Thomas Jefferson School of Law; and great shopping in and around the district.
