Paseo La Jolla Luxury Townhomes Completed

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. The property has opened a new two-bedroom model home and sales center. Fifty percent of the homes have already sold and move-ins have begun, according to Brad Termini, co-CEO of Zephyr Partners, a real estate development and investment company. 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.

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
