See the design for the California Air Resources Board headquarters in Riverside



Jeff Horseman | Press-Enterprise | 20 Nov 2017

A design has been picked for the California Air Resources Board headquarters to be built in Riverside.

Officials unveiled a rendering of the design last week. The roughly 400,000-square-foot facility will be built on 19 acres of vacant land owned by UC Riverside on Iowa Avenue, between Martin Luther King Boulevard and University Avenue.

It will serve as the Southern California headquarters for CARB, a pollution-fighting agency that helped uncover deceptive practices by Volkswagen to mask its vehicles’ emissions. The headquarters replaces an aging facility in El Monte.

[...]

More than 400 people will work at the headquarters, which is being built to meet the highest standards of the U.S. Green Building Council. Solar panels will provide power and there will be water-efficient landscaping and charging stations for 120 electric vehicles.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the project took place on Oct. 27. Construction is scheduled to start in 2018 with completion expected in 2021.

Mixed-Use Complex Planned Next to Pomona Metrolink Station





Steven Sharp | Urbanize LA | 8 Dec 2017

The proposed development, slated for an approximately 6.8-acre property at the corner of Bonita and Garey Avenues, calls for the demolition of all existing uses to allow for the construction of two low-rise buildings wrapping parking structures. The completed development would feature 647 market-rate apartments, as well as 3,700 square feet of ground-level retail space and parking for over 1,000 vehicles.

[...]

In addition to a Metrolink commuter rail station, the project will also be located next to a future stop on the Gold Line via the second phase of the Foothill Extension, which is scheduled to open in 2027.

For clarity, this project is adjacent to the North Pomona Metrolink stop on the San Bernardino Line, not the Downtown Pomona stop on the Riverside Line.

Thanks to Urbanize for the IE coverage... hope to see more in the future :cheers:

Plan bringing up to 1,750 homes near Old Town Temecula is approved



Shane Newell | Press-Enterprise | 12 Dec 2017

The Temecula City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday night, Dec. 12, to move forward with the Altair housing project. The plan calls for up to 1,750 housing units on 270 acres in the foothills west of Old Town Temecula.

[...]

Supporters from groups such as the Boys & Girls Club and Veterans of Foreign Wars praised the project for offering more housing and a new bypass road.

As part of its development agreement, Ambient Communities will pay nearly $30 million to fund the bypass and bridge over Murrieta Creek, a city report states.

[...]

About 30 percent of the 270-acre property will be reserved for housing, which could be a combination of apartments, condominiums and single-family residences. The remaining 70 percent is for open space, parks, trails and an elementary school, Honer said.

Plans call for a 5-acre park, 8 miles of pathways and trails and a 55-acre site that could be home to a nature center. Some commercial space also is included.

Because the Altair project will increase the city’s population by a few thousand residents, a bypass to link Diaz Road with Temecula Parkway is included in plans. The road will run west of the new homes and provide an alternative to Old Town Front Street.

Longtime lurker here, haven't seen this picked up by many people so here I go.

The R Hotel by Hilton concept to go on Mission Inn Ave, which includes the adaptive re-use of the old main downtown fire station, was presented to DANA for their approval.

I’ll say what I said about Indigo... that I think it’s a tad more contemporary than I’d like for the street...however, there are some great things working here. For one, the plan to have a nice Arts District sign on the old fire station, and actually, the planned incorporation of the old fire station into the design, is pretty much on point. There also appears to be some sort of “art wall” all along the first floor for pedestrians to gaze at as they walk by the hotel structure, visible from Mission Inn and Lemon streets. I think it is a very nice touch and a good connection to the surroundings.

It’s the upper leves of the structure, although nice, that I’m unsure about. But a case can be made that the building design ties into the Mid-century Modern elements of form-meets-function with the fire station and the nearby Downtown Library.

Overall, I like it better than the Indigo proposal. Although I liked Indigo’s suggested video wall-type lighting and other lighting accents...but who’s to say they would have made it into the final design.

Personally, I like this other concept (file #3) found on the DANAriverside site’s Google Drive at this link.

Merrill Avenue Brownstones Project going before City Planning Commission this Thursday, March 22. This project is proposed by Newport Beach-based Pelican Communities.

Project proposes mixed-use development consisting of 108 dwelling units (studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom units), approximately 19,200 square feet of associated open space and amenities, and approximately 1,200 square feet of retail space. The project would also modify Merrill Avenue to include on-street parking, raised landscaped median, and reduce roadway from 3 to 2 lanes between De Anza Ave and Riverside Ave. Architects Orange have designed the project in the style of East Coast Brownstone, including stoop-like entries. On-site parking garages would be located along the northern perimeter to buffer train noise.

If approved, construction is anticipated to begin in late this year with occupancy expected by the fall of 2019.

The University Campus Hotel Project is going before the City Planning Commission on April 5, 2018. The applicant is Patrick Chiu of San Gabriel-based Patrick Chiu and Associates, the Project's architects, presumably on behalf of Prime Investment International. The Project site is located at the University Village located at University Ave and Iowa Ave. More specifically, the vacant 0.8-acre pad between the University Village Towers to the west and 4-story parking structure to the north and east.

The Project proposes a 7-story, 93-foot high, 122,549-square-foot extended stay hotel with 126 rooms and 10,862 square feet of commercial uses. Hotel rooms would consist of 6 three-bedroom suites, 5 two-bedroom suites, 1 one-bedroom suite, and 114 standard guestrooms, ranging in size from 350 square feet to 1,353 square feet. Hotel amenities include a gymnasium, recreation room, and pool/spa. The Project will include a 2-level subterranean parking structure. Patrick Chiu and Associates have designed the hotel to reflect contemporary architecture with modern interpretations of classical design.

After running around the Food Hall yesterday (Pig Pen is my favorite restaurant in that place) and it seems like the northern end of downtown Riverside is getting a lot of development. And the new library is huge.

Highland Ave business district in San Bernardino is finally getting some much needed TLC. With San Manuel building their casino, hopefully this will spark some redevelopment along Highland Ave. So far in the last 2-3 years, an old k-mart in the area was converted to a charter high school and middle school. Also, an empty land parcel by the Highland Ave 215 exit most likely will land a nationally recognized hotel. Additionally, a Starbucks recently opened up in the area which to most folks is not a big deal, but it's a sign things are changing. This area about 10 years ago was an absolute dump, glad to see a little progress in this area.
