This reinvention of Marina Del Rey’s Marina Marketplace expands retail with a new “Mid-Century meets the Beach” aesthetic. EPTDESIGN is working with Callison Architects for Rreef Real Estate to create a compelling sense of place and comfortable pedestrian environment on both levels of this redevelopment. Bands of lithocrete in several colors and finishes mimic a boardwalk to lend a pier-like atmosphere within outdoor dining areas. Various systems of stormwater treatment are applied to help reduce the impact on nearby water bodies. Living walls carefully composed with succulents add color and texture to the streetscape. Restaurants, retail, a gym and dine-in movie theater assure nearby residents will have everything they need close at hand.
