Prado on Lake
840 Green Street, Pasadena, California
MULTIFAMILY EXECUTIVE MAGAZINE named Prado Condominium “Project of the Year: MID-Rise” in the November 15, 2006 issue
New Neighbor: Prado on Lake Avenue in Pasadena California by -Rachel Z. Azoff Pasadena, California’s Lake Avenue is best known for its string of high-end shops. So, with limited residential options, the neighborhood offered a big opportunity to create high-end housing for renters willing to pay a premium to live in the center of the busy retail, office, and restaurant district. The Hanover Co., based in Houston, stepped up to the challenge with Prado on Lake Avenue, a 103-unit luxury apartment community replete with all the latest bells and whistles, plus 8,800 square feet of retail and 10,000 square feet of office space. Integrating a residential building into an urban commercial area proved to be quite a challenge. The city was very particular since the project fronted the well-known Lake Avenue, says Eric Kenney, a development partner at The Hanover Co. “We got over our design challenge with the city by making our building fit into their high-end office and retail street,” he says. Following the city’s guidelines, the project features ground-floor retail space to complement its surroundings. In fact, the site’s zoning configuration required that the Lake Avenue side must incorporate commercial with a 125-foot height limit to fit in with the neighboring buildings. The balance of the site was zoned for commercial/residential use with a 50-foot height limit. To accommodate these requirements, the site evolved into two buildings: a six-story building for the commercial zone with 12 two-story loft units occupying the upper four floors, and a four-story building with ground-floor retail and 91 units. (The buildings are connected by a two-story portal.)
Prado on Lake Avenue also fits into the neighborhood aesthetically, borrowing nearby elements of classic, international style architecture. But one design feature stands out from all the rest: an intricate public art display that took a year and a half to create. The artists held a photo shoot with a large cross-section of city residents, and the images of 50 people are captured in a glass panel set into metal canopies that project out from the building. The subjects’ shadows were then sandblasted in the sidewalk below-a lasting impression indeed. Prado on Lake Avenue
