COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT Park Laurel on the Prado By Ryan Figley P ark Laurel, nestled at the peak of Bankers Hill, overlooks Balboa Park, Downtown, and the San Diego Bay. The community is a beacon at the main entrance to San Diego’s “crown jewel,” Balboa Park. Those who visit the park admire her beauty. The sophisticated, stately architecture, meticulous detailing, amenities, and spacious, livable floor plans of the residences make them akin in spirit, design, and luxury to the high-rise residences along Manhattan’s Central Park. The handsome façade of Park Laurel’s twin towers pay subtle homage to the beloved buildings 14 | SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY INSIDER | of Balboa Park. The crown of Park Laurel’s main entry lobby recalls the gracefully arched crown of Balboa Park’s beloved Botanical Building. The landscape around the community is meticulously maintained and is lush and tropical like that which Kate Sessions had envisioned for Balboa Park. The community’s residences consist of seven townhomes with direct access to the street. The 92 tower residences all feature elevator access right from inside the unit. The elevator foyer inside each home is designed and finished to the resident’s preference even as much as the elevator doors. Twelve of the units at Park Laurel have their elevators inside the residence since they are multi-story. The residences average 3,300 square feet but are as expansive as 5,900 square feet. When entering Park Laurel, you will be welcomed by a team that provides nothing short of five-star service starting with the Concierge. The esteemed Concierge team offers a wide variety of services including package service, dry cleaning, guest access, restaurant and town car reservations and even a friendly wake-up call. The engineering team ensures the mechanical equipment inside both towers is operating at its most efficient level. The engineering team is also available to help inside the units with light bulb replacement, smoke detector replacements, or even to assist with programming a new smart thermostat.
