Craftsman-inspired lofts and flats with mountain views, clustered around urban courtyards and located blocks from retail, restaurants, office towers and a Pasadena Gold Line light rail station, Alexan CityPlace added the missing piece in a central district that city planners envisioned as a single environment for living, working, and playing.  This project presented significant challenges given the urban context of a busy commercial street on one side transitioning to a quiet residential street in the back.  VTBS designed the project to respond to this condition and incorporated many features which contribute to the existing surrounding neighborhood, including ‘stoop’ entries for private entrance and subterranean parking stalls allowing for several on-grade courtyards within the three-building project.
