Point Loma/Ocean Beach, San Diego: 26 reviews and 53 photos

This wonderful architecture is of Spanish Revival, in style with strong beaux-arts. Not that I am familiar with that term, but I am familiar of the Art Deco style. This building is in that style to me. It wonderfully maintained and it stands proud across the Maritime Museum on Harbor Blvd. Built during the world?s fair era, it was considered San Diego?s first "skyscraper?. It was originally designed to be much taller, but was scaled down to give it a softer appearance. This spot was chosen to greet sea/land travelers to the growing prosperity of San Diego.

Located right across from the Maritime Museum on Harbor Drive, official address is 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, CA 92101
