17 West is Under Construction in Costa Mesa

17 West is Under Construction

Construction has begun on 17 West, a new residential community in Costa Mesa. The project will integrate a remediated, former industrial site into the fabric of the city with an innovative live/work housing model that has been successful in urbanizing other underutilized sites.

The plan connects to the existing network of city streets and the community is organized around a central park through a network of paseos. Designed in the spirit of the coastal town, the architecture is beach house modern with updated clapboard siding in sunny colors with oversized trellises and balconies. A mix of three housing choices is carefully sited within the development—three-story live/work units, four-story loft models and three-story live/work detached homes. All 177 units feature roof decks. It’s a thoughtfully planned setting for a vibrant neighborhood in an evolving part of the city.
