This pair of contemporary luxury mid-rises forms a much needed, pedestrian-scaled gateway into downtown Glendale, home to Walt Disney Imagineering. Both 5-story buildings were crafted out of the adjacent built urban environment with the goal of maximizing connectivity throughout the neighborhood.
The west building features an iconic corner element and step-down massing. Its main eastern façade receives the termination of Doran Street with large-scale vertical towers, lively yellow accents and a broad, framed volume containing loft apartments with window walls. The east building applies a more graphic approach, imparting its city block with stark geometries, a bold color palette and contemporary rhythm. Both buildings offer numerous and varied gathering spaces, fostering a sense of lavish communal living with a screening room, business center, double-height fitness facility and rooftop lounges. Punctuated by breathtaking sky decks, vertical metal elements, and loft-style units, the buildings work in tandem to introduce downtown Glendale in an innovative and relevant way.
