1625 Lincoln is the second phase of Catherine Santa Monica, a mixed-use, market-rate apartment community that represents part of the revitalization of the city’s downtown. This transit-oriented development, located within walking distance of the Third Street Promenade and METRO E Line stops, offers renters a comfortable, stylish haven from the busy pace of the Westside.
Phase II of the Catherine consists of two 5-story buildings totaling 155,450 sq. ft., including 191 units and 11,402 sq. ft. of ground-floor commercial space over two levels of subterranean parking. Construction is Type III-A residential plus a Type I parking garage with 287 spaces.
The unit mix includes studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Fifteen of the units, or 7.5% of the total unit count, are designated affordable at 30%-60% of the area median income level. Amenities include two pools (one with salt water), a roof deck with kitchen, an internet café, a micro-market, a tot lot, a gym, a yoga deck, and a media/game room.
A voluntary easement allows the Lincoln Court alleyway between Catherine Phase I and Catherine Phase II to connect to both Olympic Boulevard and Colorado Avenue. Decorative paving, lighting, and landscaping enliven this passageway for cars, pedestrians, and cyclists.
Phase 2 of Catherine Santa Monica won a 2022 ENR SoCal District Award of Merit, and an 2022 Excellence in Construction Award from the Southern California Chapter of Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC).
