Santa Monica Village is a synthesis of 325 housing units, retail outlets, and open spaces, located on a three-acre site in the heart of Santa Monica’s Civic Center. The site is centrally located—adjacent to the town City Hall and Courts, hotels, commercial structures, and a proposed garden park. The master plan for this development addresses this spectacular context by balancing and optimizing the configuration of programmatic elements to foster a sense of neighborhood. In a city of Santa Monica’s density, the issues of traffic, parking, and building height limits become increasingly critical. A well-organized community input process played a valuable role in resolving different views and helped to give the project an identity that is rooted in its Santa Monica context. With the ambitious housing strategy program set by the City and the commitment to building a sustainable community, this development can serve as a remarkable prototype for mixed-income living nationwide.
