Canter Companies Acquires Development Property in Exclusive La Jolla Neighborhood



Original 1950’s home in Bird Rock will be replaced with luxury residence with panoramic ocean views

San Diego, CA – Canter Companies, a private investment firm focusing on development and real estate, is pleased to announce the acquisition of a much sought-after property in the Bird Rock neighborhood of La Jolla. Positioned one block away from Windansea Beach, the original 1950’s home is set in an optimal location. The ranch-style, single-family residence currently stands at 1,500 square feet. Canter Development is currently in the permitting process to replace the home with a modern 3,000 ft luxury residence that will offer sweeping ocean views.

Through its extensive neighborhood presence, Canter Companies was able to identify and acquire this unique asset in one of the most competitive markets for new development opportunities. The Bird Rock neighborhood west of La Jolla Blvd has gone through extensive gentrification in the past decade and, as a result, there are very few original structures with value-add potential left. La Jolla as a whole has also seen a strong resurgence in pricing and demand since the recession of the late 2000’s which affords this opportunity a significant value upside.

The La Jolla property is one of four major development projects that Canter Companies has recently undertaken throughout the San Diego area including a ten unit infill development in Little Italy, a 4,000 square foot spec home in Carmel Valley, as well as a single-family infill project in Hillcrest.
