    The Villas At 201 Cannery Row / Urban Development

    Pay wave

    Stop here for a moment at the corner of Cannery Row and Reeside Avenue.

    Take a look at the modern three-story cement and stucco building behind you on the corner.

    Built in 2017, The Villas at 201 Cannery Row contains five luxury condominium units where the Enterprise Packers Cannery warehouse with its large fish oil storage tanks previously existed. One of the five condos, a 2-bedroom, 2-bath 1,400 square foot unit sold for $1.5 million in 2018. Oh, and HOA fees are over $600 a month. But it does have a lovely Monterey Bay view!

    The park space directly across the street was the former site of the Enterprise Packers Cannery which, along with the crossover, was unsurprisingly destroyed by fire in 1967. There is a plaque on the side of The Villas building that faces Cannery Row street which gives the historic background of this location.

    At the crosswalk, cross Cannery Row toward the park space directly across the road.
