Welcome to Electra

Electra Condos are San Diego’s tallest residential building with a towering 43 stories and 248 residences. The tower was built in 2008 by Bosa Development and sits on the corner of Kettner Blvd and Broadway at 700 W. E Street. Building amenities at Electra include concierge, 24/7 security, full-size pool and pool deck, sauna, steam room, fitness center, and social lounge off main lobby. This is the tallest condo building in San Diego.
Electra is located on the south end of the Columbia District and sits just two blocks from the water’s edge of the beautiful San Diego Bay. The name Electra was conceived because the tower was built on what was once a San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) power plant facility dating back to 1911.

Electra Condos San Diego

The original facade of the SDG&E building was preserved to its grand splendor and the original windows are now the windows of the lower floor Electra condos and townhomes.
Bosa Development donated the commercial space along Broadway to San Diego State University’s Art Department to create a community art gallery.

Electra was designed to please the most discerning of tastes and offers the sophistication of traditional elegance. The social lounge, an atrium with 60’ ceilings, redefines the standards of luxury living. The Atrium at Electra San Diego Condos is by far the most elegant community recreation room in any building in Downtown San Diego.

Electra Condos beg you to experience the rich tradition of the past while living the bold promise of the future Electra offers unparalleled views of the San Diego Skyline and bay which delight residents both day and night. Electra’s location is easily accessible as it sits just south of Santa Fe Depot and adjacent to Broadway St. and Pacific Highway.
