Electra Condos by BOSA Review

Electra Luxury Condos San Diego

LOCATION | Rating: 9 out of 10
Electra San Diego condos are located on the Columbia (waterfront) District but closer to the northern edge of the Marina District. Some would argue that Electra is in the best location that one could ask for in downtown San Diego, just two blocks from the bay and all the developments the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan will bring to San Diego’s waterfront but also close to the Marina’s established shops, restaurants and grocery store.

The Santa Fe Depot is just a block away and adds the convenience of having the train station right there for those that commute or use the train service to Oceanside, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, etc.

GENERAL AMENITIES | Rating: 9 out of 10
Electra San Diego amenities are typical for all BOSA luxury high rise buildings: very complete and considered among the best you can find in downtown San Diego condos. At Electra you will find 24 hr security, concierge services, fitness center, pool, jacuzzi, sauna & steam rooms, community party room, onsite HOA manager. The average HOA fee for a 2 bedroom condo at Electra is around $800 which is very reasonable compared to other buildings with less amenities and similar HOA fees.

COMMON AREAS | Rating: 9 out of 10
The common areas at Electra San Diego are some of the most elegant that you will find among all downtown San Diego Luxury Condos. The main ball room or community room is equipped with a full service kitchen, a piano and many tables and sitting areas. The maintenance in the common areas is superb, the staff at Electra keeps it clean at all times.

The finishes on condos at Electra as delivered by the developer are very nicely done. You will notice GE Monogram and Dakor appliances, granite counters and wood flooring on most condos & penthouses. Bosch washer and dryer and premium fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchens. The quality of the doors and baseboards is pretty good.

VIEWS | Rating: 9 out of 10
Electra condos have some of the best and well rounded views among all San Diego luxury condos. South facing condos at Electra feature incredible bay, Coronado island, city and mountain views, even from the lower floors. The presence of low rise and mid rise buildings in the immediate proximity of Electra protect the views of South facing units and allow for the view to be open and panoramic. West facing condos at Electra are facing the bay directly and those facing North feature mountain, bay and city view.

However, for north facing units the development of future projects in the area will obstruct the view of some of the units specially those below the 26th floor. East facing condos at Electra offer nice city and bay view to the right but the presence of an office building right across from Electra will partially obstruct views for those East facing units. If you are interested in Electra San Diego and would like to tour the building please let us know and we’ll guide you in the right direction and provide an overview of which units might get obstructed views in the long run.

POOL | Rating: 8 out of 10
Electra’s pool deck is very functional and well located within the building as it is right next to the gym, locker rooms, sauna & steam rooms and the outdoor BBQ area. All in the 5th floor of the building which also has a few town home style 1 and 2 bedroom condos.

The actual pool is just about average size. Not a lap pool. The best feature about the pool deck at Electra is that it receives sun all day long. There are no buildings or structures that block the sun either in the morning or afternoon hours. The pool deck at Electra also features nice bay and city views.

GYM | Rating: 8 out of 10
The gym at Electra is well equipped with cardio and strength training equipment. Maintenance in the gym is immaculate. Steam room, sauna and the locker rooms are just across the hall from the gym.

MAINTENANCE | Rating: 9.5 out of 10
The staff at Electra keeps the building in general very well maintained. There is a full service staff in charge of maintenance.
