North Park, first subdivided and developed in the early 1900's has seen it's highs and lows over the years, and is currently experiencing a cultural renaissance. The center of the current boom is 30th Street and University Avenue, the location of the first multi story Commercial Building built in 1912. Then location is the perfect launch point to explore all that North Park has to offer!

Forbes Magazine named North Park as one of Americas best hipster neighborhoods, observing " culturally diverse North Park is home to Craftsman cottages, cafes and diners, coffee shops, microbreweries, boutiques, and the North Park Farmers Market. Also The North Park Theater, the Ray Street Arts District, The Observatory musical venue, 

What make this neighborhood just north of Downtown San Diego and east of Balboa Park so unique, is that the way it was originally laid out, with Craftsman Homes and California Cottages, within walking distance of the local business, makes it as relevant today as it was over 100 years ago. Until 1949 North Park was the best  connected transportation hub  in all of San Diego with Street Cars, buses, etc. 

The residential real estate market is also undergoing change. Surrounding  homes once considered old, have now become the new trend. Rather than tearing down homes, owners and new owners are remodeling and redesigning them to their original splendor. 

If you don't know North Park, or have not been lately, it is definitely worth a look!
