Cortez Blue is located on the Southeast corner at the intersection of 8th Avenue and Ash Street, Construction on this 10,019 Sq. ft site began in July 2004 with a January 2006 completion. 67 downtown San Diego Condos and Lofts available with the options of either 1 or 2 bedrooms. The 20 story tower is a tall figure with a penthouse at the top. A Project developed by K. Hovnanian, Cortez Blu is situated atop Cortez Hill.
Cortez Blu is designed by the Architectural Firm Martinez + Cutri so that it pays homage to the legendary El Cortez Hotel nearby and is distinguished by a crown at the top. Cortez Hill is one of the oldest neighborhoods of downtown San Diego and still sports many Victorian-style homes. The San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park are some of the nearby landmarks. The neighborhood is elevated and that makes for breathtaking views of the city and the ocean. It's a prime area for living near the city yet away from its hustle bustle and coming home to serenity.
