San Diego has long been a car-centric city dominated by suburban-style subdivisions and gated communities. Now, that’s chaning. Cranes downtown mark where new office towers, luxury condos and hotels will soon join the skyline. Restaurants with upscale comfort-food menus and hidden speakeasy bars line revitalized street fronts. Though downtown’s revitalization has had several waves over tyhe years, the latest is higher-end, and picking up quickly post-recession. The population of downtown is about 30,800 residents–76% increase since 2000–and more than 9,000 apartment and condo units are currently in the pipeline for development.
