Liberty Station is a mixed-use development in San Diego, California on the site of the former Naval Training Center San Diego. It is located in the Point Loma community of San Diego. It has a waterfront location, on a boat channel off of San Diego Bay, just west of the San Diego Airport and a few miles north of Downtown San Diego. The 361-acre (1.46 km2) project includes several distinct districts: a retail and commercial district, a promenade focused on nonprofit activities, an educational district, a residential district, a hotel district, an office district, and a park/open space area along the boat channel.
Wedged between the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Rosecrans Street, and a finger of San Diego Bay, Liberty Station brought restaurants, arts, and walkability to this slice of Point Loma. The area is both a residential hot spot and a destination for San Diego locals. Its young, well-educated community thrives on the expansive parks, bay views, restaurants, arts, and culture. There’s dance, art galleries, writing workshops, fitness, shopping, and even the School of Rock. Good eats include Soda & Swine and the forthcoming second location of Buona Forchetta. One complaint from the locals? Traffic around The Rock Church every Sunday.
The new Liberty Public Market has locals excited about fresh, artisanal foods and beverages from more than 30 vendors, most of them local.
The historic former Naval Training Center grounds, complete with naval guns. Plus Malashock Dance, Corvette Diner, Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, and the massive Rock Church.
Condos can be found in the mid $500s, while the detached single-family homes range from the $600 and $700s to over $1 million. Don’t forget to plan for monthly HOA and Mello-Roos fees.
Home to the nationally renowned High Tech High School, High Tech Middle, and Explorer Elementary (also part of the High Tech charter school family), plus The Rock Church’s private academy, which serves preschool through high school.
Even with acres of parkland, there’s no dedicated off-leash area, and while the beer offerings are outstanding, the area could sure use a good margarita.
