The Clairemont Mesa community, encompassing approximately 13.3 square miles, lies south of state Route 52, west of Interstate 805, north of the Linda Vista community, and east of Interstate 5. Clairemont Mesa is one of the first post-World War II suburban developments in the City of San Diego, which is why its neighborhoods have such a strong mid-century aesthetic. Developed areas of Clairemont sit primarily atop mesas punctuated by several major canyon systems, with San Clemente Canyon to the north and Tecolote Canyon weaving through the center of the community. Many of the neighborhoods in the western portion of the community enjoy views of Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean. There are plenty of commercial centers serving the area so residents don’t have to venture far whatever their needs might be. Access to public transit is another appeal for this centrally located city. The Mid-Coast Trolley Project, now under construction, will extend the Blue Line Trolley from Downtown San Diego to the Clairemont community and beyond to the University community – connecting major activity centers such as Old Town, UC San Diego, and Westfield UTC.
