This website charts migration according to the IRS reports, based on incomes:
Folks from wealthier counties love to come here because the real estate prices look so attractive. We’re getting more affluent!
Twice as much money leaving San Diego is going just over the county line to Temecula, etc. than the other four counties combined.
Not surprising to hear that Las Vegas, Phoenix, Prescott, and Austin are the top out-of-state destinations!
The $3b from LA to VenCo scares me. That money arrive upon political winds of change.
Funny thing. When you use the interactive map and zoom in to SoCal your area is listed as “San Tijuana”.
Blink and you might have missed a drastic change to Tijuana’s skyline.
The Mexican city continues to transform as the rush for condos fuels new high-rises, including the tallest building in its history to be completed by the end of the year.
There are roughly 400 new condos opening in 2019, with most squeezed into abandoned lots around the city’s exclusive golf course. Similar to San Diego, land constraints are pushing planners to strive for higher density and stoking tension in already congested areas.
Since 2016, at least 1,000 new condos and apartments over 30 residential buildings have risen across Tijuana. Seventeen of the city’s 20 tallest buildings were constructed in the last decade and there’s no slowdown in sight.
The city’s growth has been overshadowed by news stories that have propelled the city onto the international stage. Images of Central American migrants overwhelming the city and a staggering murder rate — a record 2,518 homicides in 2018 — have dominated most news coverage.
However, economically, things are looking up. New President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has introduced an economic “free zone” along the border that increases the minimum wage and reduces income taxes. For affluent Mexicans already in the city, there are more housing options than ever before.
The crown jewel of the city’s growth this year is the 32-floor Sayan Campestre next to the city’s central golf course, Club Campestre de Tijuana. When it is completed in December, the 395-foot tower will become the city’s tallest building — unseating a condo tower constructed in 2008, the NewCity Diamond Tower, by roughly 60 feet.
Sayan Campestre will be arguably the most high-end place to live in the city, with access to the golf course, valet parking, a car wash, outdoor gardens, a gym and spa, childcare, a sports bar, two to three parking spots for every condo, a park-style outdoor space overlooking the golf course with Armani furniture, and plenty of security.
Costs for the units range from $450,000 to $1.35 million, making it the most expensive of all Tijuana developments. Views from units are of the golf course, considered one of the most ideal locations in the city because of its exclusive access.
Any news on what the earthquake resistance of those buildings are?
