The elegantly renovated Hales Warehouse at 2 Mint Plaza offers beautiful residential and live/work spaces that feature open floor plans, high ceilings, expansive industrial double-hung windows, and magnificent city views. The light-filled homes range from studios to well appointed two-bedrooms.

The building’s exterior architecture hints at its earlier role in the City’s history. Built in 1926, the building originally served as warehouses for the Hale Brother’s Department Stores, one of the city’s first premier retailers. Years later, the Hale Brother’s stores became part of the retail conglomerate of Carter, Hawley, Hale. The original structure was designed by the Reid Brothers architects, renowned for such buildings as the Fairmont Hotel and the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego.
