24 May The Luxe
The Luxe, a new multi-family residential and retail development, is located in an emerging neighborhood of eastern Pasadena within easy walking distance to the Allen Avenue Gold Line Station. Architecturally, the design of the property pays homage to the history of the city while creating a fully contemporary apartment community with modern amenities.
The design of the 131-unit development reflects elements of the beloved Spanish Revival style with limited ornamentation, pale stucco and precast walls, deep arches, recessed voids and windows that allow shadows to define the character of the architecture. Further, the ground floor plan features paseo-like entryways and courtyards, while along Walnut Street traditional stoops at the first-floor entries activate the streetscape. At the landmark corner of Walnut and Allen Streets, the former site of an historic lumber yard is celebrated with an exuberant wooden crown on the retail component of the complex.
