TYPOLOGY:    
MIXED USE

Sited in the heart of old Pasadena at a prime corner site—Fair Oaks and Green Street—and diagonal from the renowned Green Hotel Apartments, the new building falls within a compound of historic buildings under a common ownership.  The project addresses scale by following the precedent of the Green Hotel and the tall buildings further north at Fair Oaks and Colorado, essentially "bookending" a block of smaller buildings.   The new restaurant and Class A office space energize Green street and lightly hold the corner with a glassy, contemporary form that maintains the rhythms, textures, and guidelines of Old Pasadena.
