Although social distancing has made a formal ceremony impossible, non-profit developer Community Corp. of Santa Monica has announced the groundbreaking of Pacific Landing, a mixed-use affordable housing development on Lincoln Boulevard.
The project, which replaces a vacant gas station at the northwest corner of Lincoln and Pacific Street, calls for the construction of a four-story edifice featuring 37 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above 459 square feet of ground-floor retail. Parking would also be provided for nine vehicles.
Tighe Architecture is designing Pacific Landing, which would be organized around a T-shaped interior courtyard. The building would greet Lincoln Boulevard with "sculptural" forms composed of cement, plaster, and metal panels. Architectural plans show that the project would also include a rooftop amenity deck.
The approximately $28.2-million development is on pace for completion in the Summer or Fall of 2021.
