  • Client : Wilshire Skyline in partnership with Kings Arch, Inc.
  • Size : 25,292 SF
  • Project Type(s) : Historic / Adaptive Reuse


  • This project is an adaptive reuse of a landmarked building located at 1305 2nd Street at Arizona Avenue in Santa Monica, a prime corner in the extremely desirable, downtown heart of the beachside city.
  • The three-story, 25,292-square-foot building, built in 1914, is long overdue for the renovation, which will provide new spaces for commercial office and retail tenants. The exterior changes include adding ground-floor window awnings, providing new landscaping around the property, and rehabilitating the exterior brick finishes and site paving.
  • The existing windows will be retained and rehabilitated, alongs well as with the cornice and corbel details along the roofline of the building, which will be repainted and repaired as required.
  • A new 735-square-foot roof deck will be established adjacent to the existing penthouse, providing amenities for future commercial office tenants.
  • The surface parking lot at the rear of the complex will be updated to provide two loading spaces and an accessible parking space, as well as 10 tenant parking spaces.
