Soon to rise from the heart of the San Diego Marina, Bosa Development's Pacific Gate, a 41-storey condo tower designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is set to transform the downtown skyline.

Situated at the corner of Pacific Highway and W Broadway, Pacific Gate will place residents within walking distance of transit and the nearby waterfront, along with San Diego's famed Marina, Little Italy, and historic Gaslamp Quarter. Frequent flyers will enjoy the close proximity to the San Diego International Airport, just a few minutes away by car.

Future residents will enjoy stunning views of either the harbour or surrounding cityscape. Seen in the image above, the tower's signature curvilinear construction, inspired by the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean, will be instrumental in ensuring the best views possible for all residents while simultaneously achieving a distinct look for the tower.

Residents and their guests will be welcomed by car within the Motor Court pictured above, a beautifully designed space evocative of the automobile heyday of 1960s California. Below, a sizeable public space and outdoor retail court will provide residents with a place to dine, shop, and take in the scenery.

Once inside, the lobby space will feature a sleek mid-century modern design brought together with wood paneling, retro furniture, and vintage terrazzo floors.

The Residents' Lounge will feature ample seating, a gas fireplace, dining table, wet bar, and kitchen. Designed with a more contemporary feel, the Residents' Lounge will be the perfect space to entertain guests.

Just outside the Residents' Lounge patio doors, the attached outdoor pool and terrace will offer stunning city views. The beautiful amenity space, complete with cabanas, palm trees, and deck chairs, will benefit immensely from Southern California's year-round sunshine.

Moving into the units, residents will be able to select from a range of finishes, including flooring, cabinetry, and marble. Seen below, the open-concept living room and kitchen will feature ample counter space thanks to the large marble-topped island with bar stools, along with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, bringing in natural light and stunning views.

Bathrooms will come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with the option for a large soaker tub, as seen below, likely popular with residents seeking a spa-like experience from the comfort of their own home.

Ranging from 1,240 to 2,608 square feet, the larger-than-average suites will come in two distinct groupings: the Estate Collection on the upper floors and the Luxury Collection on the lower floors. Spread across the tower's 41 levels, the various suite iterations will include only two- and three-bedroom units. Once complete, the tower will be among the tallest in central San Diego, a marker of things to come.
