100 West Walnut

Pasadena, CA

Nearly forty years ago, the west end of Pasadena was considered blighted. In an era when “urban renewal” was the norm, a former historic warehouse district was replaced by the 12-story Parsons office tower surrounded by surface parking lots. Fast forward to today, a dynamic mixed-use urban village is currently under construction and taking shape. Implementing methods from the history that helped transform Old Pasadena, this project will begin to activate the once static sea of asphalt pavement.

Working with SOM, HED, and Kendall Heaton, the new neighborhood serves as an important bridge between the thriving Old Pasadena district and residential neighborhoods to the north.

The buildings work to form a network of alleyways and landscaped plazas that engage the public realm while recalling the network of buildings and open spaces that had previously graced the site.
