Milender White (MW), the Richman Group of California and DesignARC helped the City of Duarte take a key step in its Town Center Specific Plan with The Huntington, a project built with both placemaking and workforce housing in mind.
Duarte’s core now features this inviting new mixed-use development – the first project built as part of an effort to revitalize the city center.
The four-story Huntington consists of 161 units with 640 sq. ft to 1,250 sq. ft. of living space, plus 5,903 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail space. The 194,454 sq. ft. building (Type VA) wraps around a 106,160 sq. ft. garage (Type IA) with six levels and 262 parking spaces.
Residents have access to a pool, spa, and pool deck, plus parklets and courtyard areas, meeting rooms, a fitness center, a bike station, and features specifically for dog owners, such as a fenced dog run and wash station.
With over 28,000 sq. ft. of common space, the Huntington is designed to be open and welcoming. Units are designed with an open floor plan, along with patios/balconies for indoor/outdoor living. Public art from acclaimed steel sculptor Damon Hyldreth and a new traffic signal complement the project.
