3265 - 3285 Fifth Ave
San Diego, CA 92103
In 1908, construction began on
a single-story residence for Deroy
Spaulding on the southeast corner
of Fifth Avenue and Thorn Street.
The charming three-bedroom
Craftsman-style home featured beamed ceilings, quarter-sawn oak
flooring, and a large covered front porch facing Fifth Avenue.
Ten years later in 1918, at 3227 Fifth, near Spruce Street, a
two-story building with a salesroom, office,
and residential quarters opened. The
building served as headquarters for Silent
Waverly, an electric car company, and
housed a generator capable of charging as
many as 40 electric vehicles at one time.
Today, this historic site is being
transformed into a truly unique condominium community. Through
sensitive and resourceful planning, Mayfair Homes has retained
several historical features of the Spaulding residence, recreated
architectural elements of the Waverly building, added a third, more
contemporary façade, and incorporated all into an eclectic,
eye-appealing design. Welcome to Trilogy on 5th!
Adramatic departure from the ordinary, Trilogy on 5th
is destined to become a standout in the most desirable
Bankers Hill area of Hillcrest. Varying rooflines, wood
accents and trellises, and arched and recessed windows
capture the flavor of
the past while
harmonizing with the
new. The main lobby
projects an aura of understated elegance; planters
overflow with brilliant flowers in the inner courtyard.

in kitchens and baths, top-quality appliances, and a double party-wall
system for sound
insulation. Most of
the loft units feature unique circular staircases.
You’ll find living at Trilogy on 5th both convenient
and lively. Freeways, the airport, the trolley, Amtrak, and
the Coaster are easily accessible. Trilogy on 5th is a block
