About The Rey:
Located in one of San Diego's most historic downtown residential neighborhoods, Cortez Hill, The Rey combines modern aesthetics, cultural uniqueness, and a living experience unlike any other in downtown San Diego. This 22-story high-rise features 479 studio, one- and two-bedroom flats. Its interior design concept offers residents an "urban sanctuary," with an interior material palette reflecting a mix of urban, beach and green space speaks to San Diego style. The design brought special attention to green spaces, custom lighting and gathering spaces designed to support technology and resident programming. The heart of the experience at The Rey is the inside/outside connection, reinforced by a sprawling green roof that provides a modern oasis offering sweeping city views of the San Diego skyline.
