Sneak Preview: The Roost

We pride ourselves on repositioning under-performing properties for our clients. We’ve completed several with great success from both an economic and community enhancement perspective, such as Courtyard Lofts; Lincoln & Rose; and 4th+Linden, where we also acted as the developer. We are currently in the midst of completing La Brea, which caters to high-end Los Angeles hipsters, as well as a development in Pacoima that creates a community gathering place in a Latin American immigrant neighborhood.

The Roost
Now, a sneak preview of our latest adaptive re-use project in Santa Ana known as “The Roost.” The site is in the Station District on Santa Ana Boulevard, which is the main artery into Downtown from the 5 Freeway. It is a five minute stroll from the train station and two blocks from the cool East End that includes The Playground, Yost Theater and soon-to-open Food Market. A light rail train is slated to begin construction in 2015 and is proposed to travel down Santa Ana Boulevard, passing our project on its way into downtown and eventually connecting with the City of Anaheim.

Santa Ana’s rich historic downtown is attracting the arts, entertainment and culinary industries. The Roost promises to be at the center of this creative and professional infusion, adding to the neighborhood’s artsy luster with boutiques, crafts, patio dining, and unique spaces to hang out.

The Roost - Elevations

The Roost is a sustainable adaptive reuse project with a passion for Craft, Culture and Community. It is a mixed use, transit-oriented development intended to become “The Community’s Living Room.” The project will benefit from a dynamic mix of structures; including re-purposed cargo containers, a renovated craftsman bungalow duplex, a 1920’s commercial building and a reinvented two story barn. All units will have exclusive garden areas for the enjoyment of residents, patrons and shop keepers. “The Roost” is close to permit-ready and will be finished in just a few months. Come out and see for yourself what all the cackling is about!
