Mira Mesa Real Estate

Mira Mesa is approximately 10,500 acres in area and is bordered by Interstate 15 to the east, Interstate 805 to the west, the Los Peñasquitos Canyon to the north and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, to the south.

The west end of Mira Mesa is a business and technology park, often referred to as "Sorrento Mesa". This area is a major employment area for San Diego. Since its inception, Mira Mesa was influenced by the military located adjacent to MCAS Miramar. Mira Mesa was the northernmost "real community" of San Diego and was separated from the rest of the city by MCAS Miramar for many years. For 30 years the Navy's Top Gun School was located here and most of the pilots made their homes in Mira Mesa. As of the late 1990s, the Mira Mesa area has undergone extensive expansion to accommodate the thousands of new residents attracted by its close proximity to major employers like UC San Diego, MCAS Miramar, Qualcomm, and dozens of biotech and pharmaceutical companies. Several commercial and industrial centers have been built within the Mira Mesa area.
