San Diego: Clairemont Mesa

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, with many of its homes built in the 1950s and 1960s. The area is largely defined by its prominent topography. Developed areas of Clairemont Mesa 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.
