Harbor Club Condos Review

Harbor Club Luxury Condos San Diego

LOCATION | Rating: 10 out of 10
Harbor Club condos San Diego enjoy the most privileged location in downtown San Diego. Being the second luxury high rise condo building to be finished (back in 1992) when Harbor Club was built there was not too much going on in downtown San Diego. Today the city has grown and Harbor Club remains in the center of it all. Right on the Marina District, Harbor Club is located in the most established of all downtown neighborhoods, just two blocks from the bay and a few blocks to the Gaslamp restaurant and entertainment options. Harbor Club San Diego also has a few parks and green spaces in immediate proximity.

GENERAL AMENITIES | Rating: 9 out of 10
Harbor Club amenities are what you would expect to get in a luxury high rise condo building. Not more, not less. You will find a 24 hr security, concierge services, a fitness center, a lap sized pool, jacuzzi and sauna. There is also an outdoor BBQ area and a community club room for parties or private events. The average HOA fee for a 2 bedroom condo at Harbor Club is around $900 which is a bit higher than HOA fees in other downtown San Diego condo buildings with similar amenities but being an older building Harbor Club requires a bit more maintenance than newer properties. Harbor Club recently underwent a remodel of common areas and replacement of all window seals.

COMMON AREAS | Rating: 8.5 out of 10
The common areas at Harbor Club are well appointed, with an elegant lobby area and a nicely finished club room on the pool level. The maintenance of the common areas at Harbor Club is just as in the rest of luxury high rise buildings in San Diego, impeccable.

INTERIOR FINISHES + FLOOR PLANS | Rating: 8.5 out of 10
The finishes on Harbor Club Condos as delivered by the developer are definitely dated in today’s standards. For example back in 1992 white appliances where the latest and kitchen styles where completely different (usually enclosed and not open to the living room). As a result you never know what you will get at Harbor Club, the good thing is that dated units can be remodeled and there are many condos and penthouses at Harbor Club that have been brought up to date to today’s luxury living standards.

Floor plans at Harbor Club San Diego are some of the largest among all downtown San Diego luxury condominiums. The 1 bedroom floor plan is 1,046 sq ft and the smallest 2 bedroom floor plan is over 1,400 sq ft.

CONSTRUCTION | Rating: 9 out of 10
Harbor Club San Diego construction is solid, there are not pending or past issues regarding construction defects.

VIEWS | Rating: 10 out of 10
Harbor Club San Diego condos have on average the best views that you will find in San Diego thanks to the building’s incredible location on the Marina District and also because of the building’s distinct shape. South and West facing units at Harbor Club have incredible views of the bay and Coronado Island. If you like boats and yachts you will definitely enjoy the views towards the Marriott’s marina. North condos at Harbor Club have nice city views and bay views to the left (west). East facing condos will view towards the mountains but also have partial city and bay views. It is not necessary to be in a super high floor to get views at Harbor Club, condos as low as the 7th floor get some nice panoramic views.

There is no construction or future projects planned that could potentially block the views of condos or penthouses at Harbor Club. There is really no more room to build upon on the Marina district.

POOL | Rating: 9.5 out of 10
The pool at Harbor Club is one of the best in San Diego. It is an actual lap sized pool surrounded by a sun deck with loungers, chairs and beautiful landscaping. There is a jacuzzi and a fire pit as well to complete the pool deck. The gym and the club room are on the same level as the pool.

GYM | Rating: 8 out of 10
The gym at Harbor Club is well equipped with cardio equipment, free weights and a sauna. Maintenance is good.

MAINTENANCE | Rating: 9.5 out of 10
The staff at Harbor Club San Diego keeps the building in general very well maintained. There is a full service staff in charge of maintenance so no issues or remarks to make regarding Harbor Club’s maintenance or cleanliness.

OVERALL RATING | Rating: 9 out of 10
Overall Harbor Club San Diego is a great choice among luxury condos in San Diego. If location and views are an important factor for you then you should look into Harbor Club Condos first. You might notice that condos at Harbor Club tend to be priced a bit higher than similar units in other buildings (based on square footage) but this is attributed mostly to the location and views that Harbor Club offer that no other luxury building can match. Also, being a San Diego icon, Harbor Club has became a symbol of prestige and carries a brand name premium.

The only negative for this building are some of the units that are dated and depending on the buyer’s taste might need extensive remodeling in the kitchen and bathroom areas.
