ABOUT THE CORE
This 400-unit ballpark-adjacent project sets the stage for the evolution of an entire neighborhood. Much like Boston’s Fenway/Kenmore neighborhood with its brownstones and brick walk-ups, the project’s modern architecture institutes the elements of a new, uniquely South Californian, ballpark town bustling with activity.
Set on a long and narrow site, the project establishes axial relationships within the neighborhood. The jewel box leasing and recreation building provides a glowing focal point for what will eventually be the terminus of a pedestrian-friendly mixed-use corridor. Ground floor patios have direct access onto the sidewalk, setting the expectation of a lively street scene.
The highly visible building corners feature an industrial character, with exposed steel staircases and custom fabricated X-bracing inspired by stadium scaffolding. A classical, urban massing comes into play between these corner elements and the glittering leasing centerpiece. Vertical siding, elongated metal kickers and two distinct masonry treatments contribute a palette of textures to the new vernacular. The ballpark identity permeates the interior of the building, where exposed rivets and other industrial details figure prominently into the design.
Project amenities again set a new standard, with a zero-edge pool, spa retreat with day beds and alfresco dining, a sports bar and resident lounge. A trendsetting two-story fitness center with mountain and stadium views and a multi-screen Fit Wall keep exercisers motivated. This project represents a vibrant, urban core and the architectural blueprint for the neighborhood that will grow around it.
