At a prominent intersection in the heart of Monterey Park, the vision was to transform the site into a new retail and hotel location along with apartment living. Sensitive design work that met the challenges of height, density, and a sloping site.
The creation of an energizing atmosphere for the local residents and visitors, this project provides the opportunity to enhance this community located in Monterey Park through design. With generous open space and a pedestrian friendly landscaped area, it is an aesthetic improvement to the area.
The mix of a hotel with residences with the ability to walk, shop and dine just steps away leant itself to the creation of a lively and vital neighborhood. Accommodating small conference facilities, a restaurant, café, nightclub, and bar, create a brand new presence at this prime corner location.
With hospitality, people and places in mind, the design was not only sensitive but with an impressive use of materials and the real focus on the community, the result was a visitor and residential experience that is friendly, open and safe.
