Clairemont (or Clairemont Mesa) is a community within the City of San Diego, California, with a population of 82,000 residents and an area of about 13.3 square miles.
Clairemont Mesa is bordered by Interstate 805 on the east, Interstate 5 to the west, State Route 52 to the north, and the community of Linda Vista to the south. The community of Clairemont Mesa can be subdivided into the neighborhoods of North Clairemont, Bay Ho, Clairemont Mesa East, Clairemont Mesa West, and Bay Park.The Kumeyaay Indians came to the canyon area within Clairemont centuries ago in search of food and shelter. It was given the name Tecolote (meaning owl in Spanish), after this native bird that lives in the canyon. The area was mostly used for farming and ranching until World War II. In 1887 a train depot was constructed in the vicinity of Kane Street and Morena Boulevard to accommodate potential buyers in the Morena Subdivision. It was torn down in the early 1920s.
In 1936 the Bay Park Village Subdivision was approved by the City Council. This project, located immediately south of Morena Subdivision and south of Milton Street featured 60 by 100 feet or larger lots for single-family homes.
In 1950, Carlos Tavares and Lou Burgener developed what became San Diego’s largest post-war subdivision. Originally dubbed “The Village Within a City,” people started living in this new Clairemont subdivision in May 1951. The design of this new subdivision represented a new concept in community living because it did not incorporate the traditional grid system of uniform blocks and streets. Instead, winding streets and scenic view lots took advantage of the canyons and bluffs overlooking Mission Bay.
The first homes, built by Burgener and Tavares Construction Company, had highly customized floor plans. Between 1952 and 1954, seven homes were constructed a day, according to the developers. Clairemont was the largest development of its kind in the country at that time.
