Meridian


700 Front Street

The Meridian is a one-of-a-kind condo building in downtown San Diego’s Marina District.  More like something you would find in New York City, The Meridian sets the standard for luxury living.  The staff of 40+ takes care of everything: valet parking, security, doorman, and concierge.  Exquisite features like the “Stealth Bomber” pool, perfectly manicured landscaping, and a full remodel of the common areas in 2002 all make The Meridian the address for those who demand, and can afford, the very best.
