On the site of a former citrus packing house from Orange County’s agricultural era, this rail adjacent mixed-used project lies within the Transportation Corridor. The project backs onto the former Santa Fe Railway and newer Metrolink station and sits adjacent to the SOCO District which provides an array of restaurant/entertainment uses. The building evokes the evolution of the city in three phases: the red brick of its industrial past, siding for its trendy present, and acrylic paneling, its lively future. The central tower features X-bracing, exposed I-beams that tie to the Metrolink Station which serves as a marquee visible from City Hall. Large-scale industrial elements, glazing and amenities capture the zeitgeist of the area.
This eclectic setting offers urban amenities including a clubroom, pool, spa, gym and lounge. The landscape design extends the pace and movement of the project with lounge chairs on rails and ornamental box cars on tracks. Reminiscent of the High Line in the evolving meat packing district in New York City, a modern urban jungle weaves through the open spaces. This development transforms Fullerton into its trend-setting future.
