As an avid biker of the motorized type (Harley Davidson) and one who sells real estate, primarily in downtown San Diego, I was curious about which condo buildings have designated motorcycle parking for their residents. I must say … I was surprised.
The vast majority of condo buildings do not have designated parking for their motorcyclist/residents and even one – Bayside – will not allow residents to even park a bike in front of their car.
That said, here is a short list of condos (out of 26 contacted so far) with designated motorcycle parking along with pertinent detail:
41 West Only a couple of spots First come, first serve basis
Acqua Vista Number unknown $25 per month
Alicante Approx. 5 spots First come, first serve basis
Electra Approx. 6 spots First come, first serve basis
Sapphire Approx. 6 spots First come, first serve basis
Grande North Number unknown $50 per month
Treo Approx. 30 spots (Yippee!) Register for sticker, no fee
Pacific Gate Approx. 6 spots Possible fee, TBD
This has been a bit like being a detective … The phone tag, the sniffing out of details… and many of the buildings’ HOAs I’ve reached out to have yet to return my call, so stay tuned for a follow-up article.
Better yet, if you own a motorcycle and have thought about buying a condo in downtown San Diego, call me. (619-876-0247) Not only will I have a strong interest in finding you the right place to live and park that two-wheeled wonder, heck, you may have found another riding partner!
