The Olde Cracker Factory is a heritage building that was built in 1913 and located on historic Market Street in downtown San Diego, California. The building is located in the Marina Housing District and is centrally located to all of downtown San Diego’s fine amenities. The San Diego Convention Center, Horton Plaza, Seaport Village, Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo, Gaslamp Historic District, Petco Park, The Children’s Museum, The Headquarters, Grand Hyatt and San Diego’s waterfront are just blocks away.
The Olde Cracker Factory has been refurbished into 11 live work lofts, which include four rooftop penthouse units, as well as creative office space and ground floor retail space. The project broke ground in 2007 and was completed in March 2009. It is located at 448 West Market between Columbia and State Streets. The Olde Cracker Factory is nestled in a quiet part of downtown that is just a block away from beautiful Pantoja Park, yet a five minute walk to the busy streets of the Gaslamp, boardwalk of Seaport Village, the new Headquarters Development and Westfield’s Horton Plaza. Ralphs and Jimbo’s supermarket is just four blocks away.
The Marina District is a neighborhood in the southwest section of downtown San Diego, CA. The district is bordered to the north by the Colombia district, bordered to east/south-east by the Gaslamp Quarter, and is bordered to the south-west by the San Diego Marina. Home to mid-rise and high-rise hotels, apartments, condominiums, medical offices and retail, the Marina District includes beautiful Seaport Village and the bustling San Diego Convention Center.
Recently, a downtown renaissance has ensued with the additions of Seaport Village, Horton Plaza, our bay front convention center, the Manchester Grand Hyatt, and Petco Park (home of the Padres). Old Police Headquarters is now open to the public as a wonderful expansion to Seaport Village with it’s eclectic shops and restaurants such as Season’s 52, which is only a block away from the Cracker Factory. Future redevelopments in the area include four super blocks at the Navy Broadway complex which will greatly expand the amenities in the Marina District.
