Sapphire Tower Reaches 65% Sold

Downtown San Diego's Boutique High-Rise Counters Recession Slowdown

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 6, 2010) - Sapphire Tower has sold 65 percent of its luxury residential high-rise homes in its first year with an average sales price of more than $1 million per home.

Chuck Sigmon, director of sales and marketing for Sapphire Tower, said, "At first glance, Sapphire Tower may look similar to other downtown properties, but after every tour, visitors all agree that we absolutely differentiate ourselves from all other downtown residences."

"We constantly hear that our floor plans are the most open and functional in downtown San Diego," Sigmon continued. "This combined with the privacy of only one to three neighbors per floor, the water views and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows has helped our sales team set sales records as well as to earn six National Real Estate Sales Awards."

The top nine floors of Sapphire Tower are designed with 18 half-floor penthouses featuring private elevator entries and spacious floor plans nearing 3,000 square feet. Floors 8 through 23 only have four units per floor such that each is a corner unit. This enables every owner to appreciate increased privacy, natural sunlight, views and San Diego's world-famous climate.

The homes feature modern Euro-style cabinetry, chic Dacor or Wolf gourmet cooking appliances and Kitchen Aid or Sub Zero refrigerators. Stainless steel Bosch Integra dishwashers, slab granite countertops with backsplash (per designer package), spacious wardrobes, modern Purist Wading Basin lavatories and Kohler plumbing fixtures add a touch of luxury and comfort to each home. Completing these spacious, sophisticated homes are floor-to-ceiling windows, nearly 10 1/2 foot ceilings and large private balconies. Sapphire Tower residences are priced from the $500,000s to $3 million.

A development of Centurion Partners, Sapphire Tower is a 32-story project located on the southwest corner of Kettner Boulevard and A Street in downtown San Diego. Sapphire Tower includes 97 luxury homes in studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and penthouse designs. The building's features include a large pool, hot tub and sundeck fully equipped with a fitness center and spa. Sapphire Tower was recently recognized with a Silver National Sales & Marketing award for the Best Model Home Over $1 Million. The Sapphire Tower sales office is located at 1262 Kettner Blvd., #1401.
