The Westside Urban Forum has awarded Community Corporation of Santa Monica the 2007 Westside Prize for Pacific Court, which is near completion at 2209 Main St. in Santa Monica.
The “Year of the Small Developer” award was presented June 8th at a luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Community Corporation of Santa Monica was commended for “an outstanding project that strengthens its neighborhood through commitment to quality and sensitivity to context,” according to the Westside Urban Forum.
The Westside Urban Forum provides a platform for debates about land use issues that affect livability on the Westside and recognizes projects and studies that demonstrate excellence in city making and community building.
Pacific Court, at the intersection of Main and Pacific Streets, is scheduled to be completed and leased to residents later this summer.
Consisting of five buildings surrounding a courtyard designed by Frederick Fisher Partners, the court is one of a few Community Corporation buildings to offer new four-bedroom units and the second corporation building to have a mixed use, with three retail spaces on the bottom floor, according to the corporation.
Two- and three-bedroom units make up the balance of the 44 apartments, which will be offered to income-qualified families.
