The Logan Heights area is a well-known neighborhood that is located near the heart of San Diego. The neighborhood actually lies southeast of the downtown area, bounded by Interstate 5 along its southwestern border and the Escondido Freeway to the east. Naval Station San Diego is located nearby to the south of the neighborhood.
Logan Heights gained its name from U.S. Congressman John A. Logan after a street in the area was named in his honor. Shortly afterwards, the area became known by this name as well. Beginning in 1910, the neighborhood saw a large influx of refugees seeking to escape Mexico during the Mexican Revolution. As a result, the southern portion of the neighborhood was eventually known as Barrio Logan.
Logan Heights offers a variety of sensible homes for sale that are also relatively affordable. These homes tend to be relatively simple in both architecture and design, drawing mostly from the California and Spanish bungalow designs that are largely dominant throughout the region. The majority of these homes are single-story structures with a relatively basic floor plan, although there are several two-story and split-level homes located throughout the neighborhood.
As a relatively mature neighborhood with the vast majority of structures built up to the late 1950s and early 1960s, there isn't much open real estate to be purchased. Nevertheless, there are small lots featuring modest acreage available, namely for residential and limited commercial usage.
