This project represents the second phase of the Catherine, a mixed-use, multifamily community in Santa Monica’s downtown. This transit-oriented development, located within walking distance of the Third Street Promenade and the Expo Line terminus, is part of the revitalization of Lincoln Boulevard north of the 10 Freeway.
The project consists of a 5-story, 155,450 sq. ft., mixed-use building with a total of 191 units and 11,402 sq. ft. of ground-floor commercial space over two levels of subterranean parking. Construction is Type III-A residential building with a Type I parking garage with 287 spaces. The site is 69,069 sq. ft.
The unit mix ranges from studios up to three-bedroom apartments. Fifteen of the units, or 7.5% of the total unit count, are designated affordable at 30% income level. Multiple amenity spaces include a tot lot, gym, yoga area, pool, roof deck, internet café, and a media/game room.
A voluntary easement is provided between the east and west portions of the project, allowing the Lincoln Court alleyway to connect to both Olympic Boulevard and Colorado Avenue. Decorative paving, lighting and landscaping enliven this passageway for cars, pedestrians and cyclists.
