Aloft on Cortez Hill

If you’re looking for sophisticated urban living at an affordable price in one of downtown San Diego’s most desirable neighborhoods, you need to look no further than Aloft on Cortez Hill.  This attractive, award-winning residential complex offers traditional and loft-style homes in a wide array of one and two story floor plans ranging from 606 to 1175 square feet.


Aloft’s unique, open space floor plans have a spacious feeling, yet offer an element of space separation and privacy.  For example, in some units, bedrooms are separated by a short staircase and partial walls (floor to mid-ceiling), or by a large staircase, where bedrooms encompass the entire 2nd floor, with living area below.

Aloft was built in 2006 by Oliver McMillan, a San Diego-based development firm known for architecturally unique, high-quality projects throughout the United States.  Aloft’s stylish condos feature high ceilings, galley kitchens, and floor–to-ceiling European-style windows to create light and bright, interesting loft spaces.  The developer included high-end design features such as laminate wood flooring, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops for a sleek finish. The building, with 168 residences, is a five-story mid-rise, built of concrete and steel.

Cortez Hill and Tweet Street Park

Aloft is tucked away in a quiet, hip neighborhood high atop Cortez Hill.  It is adjacent to Tweet Street Park, an adorable, linear park with colorfully painted birdhouses and fire hydrants that span the length of three city blocks along Date Street. Locals can walk their dogs or simply enjoy the leisurely atmosphere and serenity of this neighborhood park.

Aloft’s Amenities

Upon entering Aloft’s contemporary lobby, you will see through to the common area amenity deck.  This common area courtyard is the focal point of the community where residents enjoy amenities including a resort-style pool with cascading waterfall, hot tub, BBQs, fitness center, and distinctive fire pit surrounded by private cabanas and a sandy beach. HOA fees are $285 to $350 per month, low in comparison to other downtown residential buildings.  For more details on Aloft, or condos available for sale, please call (619) 246-8400.
