Pacific Gate offers some floor plans with protected views of the bay and others that will be impacted by future / ongoing construction in the Columbia District. So it is important to understand what is happening around this building to ensure your views don’t get blocked or impacted in the future.

NW at Pacific Gate over the 20th floor (height of Intercontinental hotel right across from the building) offer incredible bay views that are as protected as they get. Directly west of Pacific Gate the Fairmont hotel is currently scheduled to be built in the near future. This will impact all west facing units at Pacific Gate as the Fairmont hotel will be the same height as Pacific Gate.

SW units at Pacific Gate will be impacted by IQHQ Research and Development District, but most SW facing units will keep corridor views towards the bay.

Directly south of Pacific Gate, the lot used as an Office Depot will become another BOSA condo tower affecting south facing floor plans. This is in the medium to long term and might be closer to the year 2030, however things might change. Please inquire about construction before picking a unit!

The pool deck at Pacific Gate feels like a resort, laid out with cabanas and reclining chairs. The actual pool is a descent size but not large enough to swim laps. Overall it is a great pool deck, but certainly not the best in downtown San Diego.
