Sapphire Tower Named Best of the Best

Project Wins BIA's Icon Award

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2010) -  Sapphire Tower was recognized as the best of San Diego's building industry at the Icon Awards, a Building Industry Association celebration. Its penthouse model residence #2502 by Centurion Partners, Urban Housing Partners and Artisan Design Group won the award for Best Interior Design for an Attached Product. 

The award-winning model, priced at $2.5 million, has clean lines and rich textures that showcase the sophisticated palette of java, warm pewter, taupe and cream. The use of multiple shades of green evokes the presence of the outdoors, even at 31 stories above sea level. The highest level of finishes and furnishings provides an elegant but not overpowering backdrop for both the spectacular floor-to-ceiling views and the ambiance of downtown San Diego. 

Combining former BIG and SAM awards into one event, the BIA's Icon Award includes categories for best industry professionals and representatives, projects, marketing and design. 

A development of Centurion Partners, Sapphire Tower is a 32-story tower with 97 luxury homes, including one-bedroom, two-bedroom and penthouse designs. The top nine floors offer half-floor penthouses with private elevator entries and spacious floor plans nearing 3,000 square feet. On floors eight through 23, there are only four units per floor so that each is a corner home, enabling every owner to appreciate privacy and water or cityscape views. Penthouses range in price from $2.4 million to almost $3 million and lower units are priced from $500,000 to $1.4 million. Only a handful of homes are still available.

According to Chuck Sigmon, director of sales and marketing for Sapphire Tower, since November 2008 the project has captured 43 percent of all sales in the 92101 zip code listed above a selling price of $1.485 million.

Located at Kettner Boulevard and A Street in downtown San Diego, building amenities include a large pool, hot tub and sundeck and a fully equipped fitness center and spa. Sapphire Tower has been the recipient of a Silver National Sales & Marketing award for the Best Model Home for Over $1 Million.
