San Diego’s Tallest Residential Building – Pinnacle Towers

The Canadian-based company, Pinnacle International Property Developer is building Pinnacle Towers in Downtown East Village. The two-tower project will have a total of 956 residential units, including 72 Affordable Housing units, as reported by CIVIC San Diego.

The 45-story towers will rise 479 feet as the tallest residential complex in San Diego, close to the 500 feet maximum allowable height in the area. The South Tower, currently under construction, is now visible from miles away and clearly identifiable surrounded by single-story and low-rise buildings.

The finished project will include a 1.29-acre public park that is currently under construction on the corner of 14th St and Island. The park will have a large turf area and playground, it will be one of the largest parks in Downtown.

The park lies on top of the Rose Canyon earthquake fault and this could be the main reason why such large area was designated as a park. Many East Village residents don’t mind the earthquake fault and most residents prefer the open green space.
