Cortez Blu – San Diego Downtown

Building Description

Cortez Blu Condos are located at 801 Ash Street in the Cortez District of Downtown San Diego.

One of San Diego’s oldest residential neighborhoods was named after the famous El Cortez Hotel, which has been restored and converted into condominiums. Views include Balboa Park, San Diego Bay, the Pacific Ocean and the urban scene below.

Victorian-style homes share the area with newer condominiums and apartments. The hill’s topography separates it from downtown’s hustle, yet its proximity makes it desirable for those who want to live on the cusp of an active urban center.

The character of this neighborhood is symbolized by the lavender blooms of the jacaranda trees that line its main streets and lead to its newest ¬linear park, “Tweet Street.”
