  • West: The Bay views towards the West and South West are somewhat obstructed by a Marriott hotel that was built in 2015. The recently constructed Intercontinental Hotel (2018) at 19 stories has impacted some of the Western views. Both hotels were built in a horizontal direction which has allowed some of the water views to remain intact from the lower floors. Once above the 19th floor, the full waterfront views open up tremendously. The Northwest views towards the bay appear to be protected from the hotels.
  • North: The North view from both of The Grande towers could be deemed as the safest view. From what I can tell, the least amount of future construction appears to be going up in this direction. Another view that I find quite enticing is that of the airport and its runway which is captured from the NW from about floors 20 on upwards.
  • East: If you are on the East side of the towers you will have a direct view of the historic Santa Fe Train Station. This is a San Diego landmarked property that cannot be torn down nor built up. Many buyers ask me about the noise that can be heard from the trains coming and going. Yes, they can be heard but as one who personally resides within view of the the tracks, I can honestly say that after a few days I became accustomed to the sounds and I rarely even notice them. I have personally come to enjoy the life and activity below that living above an active train station has to offer.
  • South: This view allows those that reside in the South tower to look directly over a vacant parking lot, yes it will be built on at some future point. There are some bay views facing South along with direct views oriented towards San Diego’s first ‘Super Prime’ tower, Pacific Gate, that just recently wrapped up construction (2018) and has is now considered by many to one of the most iconic structures in downtown. Both the North and South towers of The Grande are also within a stones throw of the 1.8 billion dollar Manchester Pacific Gateway project that scheduled to complete sometime in the next 3-4 years.
