Although the Colombia District is known primarily as a commercial neighborhood, the area still boasts more than 1,800 residential units. In addition, several new high-rise condo buildings are currently being built in the area. Therefore, if you are interested in living in the midst of more than 1 million square feet of commercial space, you can't go wrong here!

Deciding if the Colombia District is Right for You 
Although living in the Colombia District means being conveniently close to numerous employment opportunities and attractions, there are several things you should consider before purchasing a home in this neighborhood. For example, the fact that the area is largely comprised of commercial buildings means you may not get the “neighborhood” experience you are looking for in a home. Of course, if you are employed within one of the commercial buildings located in the Colombia District, living in the neighborhood is certainly convenient. In fact, since the Santa Fe Depot is serviced by the Trolley as well as by the Pacific Surfliner and the Coaster, you may not even need to own your own mode of transportation when you live here. Furthermore, thanks to the numerous luxury condos being built in the neighborhood, the Columbia District also offers outstanding investment opportunities for those interested in purchasing penthouses in “phase one” construction.
 
It is also important to note that despite the fact that the Colombia District is comprised largely of commercial buildings; the waterfront still plays an important role in this neighborhood. In fact, as part of the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan, a 100 foot wide boardwalk is to be created within the neighborhood. Not only will this help visitors and residents enjoy the beauty of the natural environment, the boardwalk is also slated to include numerous dining, entertainment and shopping opportunities. Therefore, when you move to the Colombia District, you get to combine the best of two worlds into one!
