PROJECT UPDATE

EL SEGUNDO RISES INDEED! – Balian’s 212 Eucalyptus Project breaks ground.

The 3 story proposed development at 212 Eucalyptus intends to be a signature development for Smoky Hollow and the entire city of El Segundo with a striking architectural expression that pays homage to the site and the history of the neighborhood with the use of existing contemporary industrial materials including exposed steel, metal siding including re-use of existing metal siding and expressive structural elements and entirely exposed circulation stairs showcasing the vertical movement to the neighborhood. The development will include 3 levels of creative office space totaling approximately 14,119 square feet. The rooftop includes an accessible deck area for tenants and visitors to hold impromptu or formal meetings or to take a break from the office and enjoy views of the city and get some fresh air.

PROJECT UPDATE

EL SEGUNDO RISES INDEED! -Balian’s Standard Works, 140 Oregon project rises out of the ground.

The “Standard Works” project is a 191,896 sf parcel bound by East El Segundo boulevard on the south, east franklin avenue on the north and Oregon street on the west.  The grand vision of the development is a design that enhances the existing industrial aesthetic of the neighborhood by preserving all mid-century facades and utilizing similar industrial building materials and techniques to create a cohesive architectural expression between the existing and the proposed. Preservation of the existing 1950’s mid-century red brick façade is an objective of the design and the smoky hollow specific plan. This mix of unique old and new eclectic buildings is enticing to prospective creative and knowledge-based businesses across many industries. The lively and pedestrian friendly creative atmosphere of standard works will contribute to the ongoing smoky hollow transformation to an incubator district and major economic force in the city.
