The Village at Santa Monica by Related California
|MEP L/S||Davidovich & Associates|
In the heart of Santa Monica Civic Centers’ once sleepy oceanfront stretch is an exciting new development- the first major residential mixed use project on Ocean Avenue in decades.
Built by Related Companies, acclaimed developer of the luxury Century condominium tower in Century City, as well as Time Warner Center in Manhattan, The Village of Santa Monica is over 3 Acres of 318 luxury condominiums, affordable rental apartments and 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurants in 3 buildings. The project is equipped with environmentally sustainable features that include alternative energy programs, common parking and bicycle stalls and is anticipated for LEED Silver. The plan was adopted by the city in 2005. Preliminary utility work on the site began in late 2011 and is now open as of June 2014 and renting with individual units available for sale.
With Pacific Ocean views the site will provide a central arterial networking the surrounding hotels, residential and retail neighborhoods to the South and the Santa Monica Pier and bustling commercial district to the North. As part of the City’s efforts to create a more integrated environment for the center, Olympic Drive has been extended West to Ocean Avenue. The property is located just South of Tongva Park, the new 6 acre, $47 Million City Park opened in fall 2013, built by the Santa Monica City on the old Rand site along Ocean Avenue. The project team included Architectural firms Moore Ruble Yudell, Koning Eizenberg Architecture, KTGY Group, Inc., LARGE Architecture, Landscape Architect Mia Lehrer + Associates and Pankow as general contractor. Contemporary, Zen interiors of the 158 luxury condominiums and 160 affordable rental residences were designed by Clodagh of New York (The Seychelle) and Marmol Radziner (The Waverly).
