IMG_9166PSAR is proud to announce that a new Service Center in San Diego’s Clairemont community.

The new centrally located PSAR facility, easily accessible throughout central San Diego, at the Liberty Park Plaza, 4340 Genesee Ave., Suite 203, San Diego.  We are right next door Curves on the Second floor.

Clairemont is a vibrant, culturally and ethnically diverse suburb conveniently located for commuters between three freeways, including Interstate 5 and 805 and State Route 52. Its perch atop the mesas of San Clemente Canyon and Tecolote Canyon affords enviable views of Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

The community’s early developers, Lou Burgener and Carlos Tavares, changed the community’s name from Morena Mesa to Clairemont in honor of Tavares’ wife, Claire. In the early 1950s, Clairemont became San Diego’s largest post-war subdivision. Burgener once boasted that between 1952 and 1954 an average of seven tract homes were constructed per day. Clairemont was known at the time as the largest development of its kind in the country. Considered innovative at the time, homebuilders abandoned a more traditional gridded blocks and streets in favor of cul-de-sacs and meandering streets. 

Today, Clairemont offers perhaps the most multicultural dining options in San Diego County. Here you can find international markets, as well as Thai, Italian, South African, Mexican and Lebanese restaurants all within the same block.
