Properties / Del Mar Station

Urban Partners was selected in August 2000 from among 11 bidders and awarded development rights to a 3.8 acre site at the Del Mar Station on the Los Angeles to Pasadena Blue Line (now Gold Line) light rail transit system. The development included rehabilitation of the historic Santa Fe Depot and development of 347 apartment units, a 1,190 stall parking garage and retail shops around the rail station.

Working with Pasadena-based architect Moule & Polyzoides, and in close cooperation with the City of Pasadena, Gold Line Construction Authority and Metropolitan Transportation Authority of Los Angeles County (Metro), Urban Partners created a highly innovative mixed-use “courtyard housing” concept for the site. An extensive public art installation was created and installed by Ries Niemi.

Del Mar Station is considered one of the most ambitious and outstanding civic and architectural developments on the Southern California Metro rail system.

Keller CMS was involved with all aspects of the work.

The development was sold in December 2004.
