Los Angeles-based architecture firm Struere has announced the start of work for the renovation of a medical and office building in Santa Monica

The four-story edifice, located at 900 Wilshire Boulevard, will be re-skinned with glass and see a full makeover of its main lobby.  Additionally, plans call for the addition of just under 1,000 square feet of new office space to the existing 29,875 square feet of rentable space.

A project description notes that the new glass exterior opens up views of the ocean and Santa Monica Mountains, with an angled facade that reflects the sunset.  Cornice elements are used to define the building's profile, while metallic frames extend around its edges.

At ground level, plans call for an exposed colonnade to open the property to pedestrians along Wilshire, welcoming them into its lobby.

Sterling Real Estate Group is behind the renovation, along with a team that includes Nabih Youssef Associates, HLB Lighting, Amelect, Inc., WM Group West, Troller Mayer Associates, Inc. and Cal-City Construction.

Slow Progress at San Pedro Small Lot Development

24 on Centre broke ground in October 2017.

Ten months ago, Santa Clarita-based Williams Homes broke ground on a small lot subdivision in San Pedro.  The project, which replaces a vacant lot at the intersection of 8th and Streets, is known as 24 on Centre.  Plans call for 24 single-family residences, all of which would feature a rooftop deck and a parking garage.
