Mixed-use, Designed to LEED® Silver Standards

Located in Santa Monica’s vibrant downtown business district, this mixed-use housing and retail project adds to the city’s urban fabric with street-level activity and fosters a more walkable community. Cuningham Group designed the project around two exterior courtyards, which feature lush landscaping, fountains, and outdoor spaces for social interaction among residents. One courtyard functions as an activity hub with a salt water pool, bar, pool table, games, and plenty of lounge seating. The second gathering space is geared toward relaxation with a salt water spa, fire pit, and comfortable seating.

Our firm worked with the client to understand their vision and to bring this ideal to fruition. The design team carefully planned the path of travel residents would take upon arrival at the property, through the entrance and into the lobby, into the shared community spaces, pool deck, and living spaces to create a bright, accessible and fluid environment.

This project is anticipated to be LEED® Silver and is a certified Green Point rated community. Sustainable features include solar panels that heat the pool and green walls clad with self-irrigating native plants.
