The groundbreaking and ceremonial signing of a giant girder for $350 million Village at Santa Monica took place today for the residential and retail development steps from the beach on Ocean Avenue.
Cranes are now in the air at the site of Related California’s urban mixed-use, mixed-income development, which will be one block away from the upcoming Expo Line.
This is a major milestone for the city of Santa Monica and the region as new construction of this magnitude has been rare over the past few years.
With one of the most desirable locations in Southern California, the low-rise Village at Santa Monica will offer 158 luxury condominiums, 160 affordable apartments, and 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurants.
It is designed to enhance pedestrian connectivity with a public walk street between Main Street and Ocean Avenue, and abundant gardens and plazas lined with retail and restaurants with outdoor dining.
