Cruzan/Monroe, Cigna Buy DiamondView Tower for $121M
By Alex Girda, Associate Editor
In a $121 million deal, Cruzan/Monroe and Cigna Investments Inc. have acquired San Diego’s DiamondView tower. Seller Wereldhave USA was represented by CBRE Inc. The 15-story, 305,255-square-foot building is located at 350 Tenth Ave. and offers views of nearby Petco Park.
DiamondView Tower is 95 percent occupied by such tenants as the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Red Door Interactive, Cox Media, Comerica Bank, as well as CBRE’s Downtown San Diego office. CBRE will continue to handle leasing, as it has since the building’s completion in 2007.
The property includes a two-story lobby, as well as its signature 15th-story skybox, available as a hospitality penthouse unit. The building offers services such as the Fit Athletic Club, a fitness center with an outdoor pool and deck. Developed as the first component of a baseball-centric project, DiamondView Tower will now be used to capture some of the area’s potential for street-level retail.
