    525 Olive ~ Balboa Park

    525 Olive is rising above Balboa Park and is the highest residential address in the city, with unparalleled views spanning every horizon. These stunning perspectives are matched by equally impressive interiors and amenities, with bespoke design and curated spaces by architect Joseph Wong and the renowned studio of Jules Wilson.

    All of this, in a park side setting that gives you doorstep access to Balboa Park with downtown San Diego just a few blocks away.

    Join us for appetizers, beverages and a guided tour!
