Construction has been completed at Paseo La Jolla, a new, 24-unit luxury townhome community at the corner of Herschel and Pearl in La Jolla.

Most of the homes have private rooftop terraces with views of La Jolla and the Pacific. Prices range from the low $700,000s to just over $1 million. Sizes range from 1,000 square feet to more than 1,600 square feet with one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. The two-bedroom plus den, three-bath model home can be viewed by potential homebuyers. Paseo La Jolla and the sales center are at 1056 Pearl Street, No. 23, La Jolla.
