More about IV Housing:


As the largest private development in Isla Vista in more than 40 years, Ed St. George and Associate’s building at 870 Camino del Sur provides 56 units and 106 bedrooms of new, energy efficient, high quality rental housing in 52,700 square feet. The design incorporates numerous innovative sustainable features, including a perforated metal skin that shades the building façades, energy efficient LED exterior lighting, permeable gravel parking lots, rental discounts to hybrid vehicle owners, a four vehicle car sharing service, and an owner-sponsored pilot program to eliminate the utility bills of tenants that reduce their energy use.

More about Park Place:


An adaptive reuse project in El Segundo, California, a two-story concrete tilt-up building has been skillfully repositioned into a creative campus through strategic interventions that resonate with the new values of “cultural creative.” By transforming an anonymous 120,000 SF concrete “windowless bunker” from the 60’s in an industrial area into a vibrant creative workplace, the building has become attractive to a new type of tenant and a magnet for talent.
