1441 Ninth Avenue

Aria is a condo building located in the Cortez Hill neighborhood of downtown San Diego (92101).  Developed by the same company as Alta, Aria features some similar design elements and finishes – including my personal favorite, windows in the bathrooms!  Aria condos in Cortez Hill definitely have some unique floor plans for downtown San Diego and fantastic views from the higher floors.
