Step into the luxurious and sophisticated lifestyle of Electra where residents enjoy world-class amenities including colorfully landscaped gardens, outdoor fireplace and grills, large pool with afternoon sunlight, hot tub, steam room, sauna, fitness center, 24 hour security, friendly concierge service, and an elegant, historically designated "Conservatory", a resident community room. Electra is located in the Columbia District, a waterfront location on San Diego Bay, and was built by Bosa Development in 2007. Electra is 43 stories high, and the tallest residential building in downtown, San Diego. Incorporated into its lower exterior is the neoclassical, Art Deco facade of the old San Diego Gas & Electric building, now a registered historic landmark. Meticulously restored and renovated, it was the site of San Diego's main power plant from 1911 to the mid-1950s, and is this original historic portion of the building that houses Electra's main lobby and the "Conservatory". Breathtakingly beautiful with a glass dome ceiling, the "Conservatory" is used as a community room for residents which encompasses a full kitchen, grand piano, sofas, lounge chairs, private reading rooms, tall potted plants, and flowers creating a warm and inviting feel.
