Moving to Downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown San Diego

Wondering where you should live in San Diego? Called “The Historic Heart of San Diego,” the Gaslamp Quarter is downtown’s most vibrant urban neighborhood. With amazing job opportunities, a bevy of restaurants and nightclubs, and some of San Diego’s top luxury apartments, this district is the perfect spot for young professionals.

If relocating to the Gaslamp Quarter is the next “move” for you, Move Central is the right local moving company to make your experience stress- and worry-free. We hire only the best San Diego movers, and our dedication to customer satisfaction has earned us hundreds of 5-star reviews.

Living in the Gaslamp Quarter is a great choice for folks who want to be at the center of all the action. It’s a “millennial” part of the city, as more than 50% of the population is between 25 and 34. In addition to a flourishing nightlife, if you live here, you’re also just a few blocks from the San Diego Marina, the Convention Center, and fun things to do!

The majority of residents in this neighborhood rent, rather than own their homes. Luckily, renting in the Gaslamp Quarter is cheaper than other parts of San Diego; the median monthly rent is about $1,000 per month, compared to a citywide average of $1,400 per month. Plus, if you take advantage of the walkability in the area, you’ll get the added benefit of less transportation costs!

Settling in the Gaslamp Quarter is also perfect for professionals who plan on working in the downtown business district. San Diego is known for its thriving healthcare and biotech industries, but it’s also one of the top locations in the US for budding startups. You can even find jobs in San Diego at giants like Amazon and Google, which both have satellite offices in the city.

Of course, we can’t talk about this urban metropolis without mentioning the amazing weather near the “Best” coast! If you’re tired of snowstorms in the Northeast, or battling hurricanes in the South, why not skip the storms and come enjoy the sun in San Diego? With 266 sunny days every year and an average temperature in the 70’s, you’ll think you’ve moved to paradise.

    5 star ratingVery professional service! Kelly and Anthony arrived on time and worked their ways through two large rooms very quickly.  They asked the right types of questions regarding boxing like items together and got the job done.  Very friendly also I must add! Will certainly be using this service again!
