February, 22 2017

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Award-winning, Los Angeles-based Architecture Firm, Newman Garrison + Partners' latest project is a 245-unit mixed-use development within the Warner Center - a project designed to be a modern-luxe haven, attracting young professionals and millennials.

The Q East is located at 6200 Variel and Erwin Street as part of the master planned community, the Warner Center in Woodland Hills, and will break ground Winter 2017. The inspiration behind the development was to fulfill the vibrant spirit of the Warner Center Specific Plan in which residents can enjoy high-living amenities that include full service concierge, valet parking, resort-style pools, a 5th floor roof deck and outdoor movie theater to accommodate outdoor events. The project boasts over 40,000 sq.ft. of commercial/restaurant space.

"We want to give the residents of the Q more than they can expect. The Q will be the West Valley's most sought after luxury lifestyle," said owner of the project and CEO of California Home Builders, Shawn Evenhaim.

The 7-story project makes a modern statement with its striking exterior corner facade - creating a stunning architectural feature to enhance the outdoor experience. In addition, an 8,800 sf. outdoor public plaza anchors the corner, connecting the restaurant/office users to promote a sense of community. This is just one of the many elements of the project created to attract a younger generation in a highly competitive market. Health and wellness serve as a theme throughout the development - constructing a 7,500/ft full service fitness center with yoga studio featuring state-of-the-art equipment, gourmet teaching kitchen, 2 large outdoor courtyards with resort style pool and amenities. A raised 2-story restaurant with rooftop viewing terrace bar/lounge and dining area overlooks the plaza below.

The project will add to the already booming Warner Center Specific Plan which will also include The Q West (slated to open in 2019), another groundbreaking project between Newman Garrison + Partners and California Home Builders. The Q West combines luxury apartments, restaurants and workspace as part of a modern mixed-use development in a prime location adjacent to the Westfield's Topanga at the Village Shopping Center, featuring premier dining, athletic clubs, and luxury retail.

"Architectural Innovation is Worth the Effort" Green Home Builder
January, 28 2015

Architects are creative people who are determined to improve the world, one structure at a time. Problem is, their clients are usually not as interested in blazing new trails and you can't blame them for being cautious. Builders and developers invest huge sums of money to get their projects planned, built and occupied. There is little room for invention, except, perhaps incrementally, such as the slow but sure adoption of sustainability measures and energy efficient components like solar power.

However, after years of introducing design innovations such as the multifamily "wrap" to the real estate industry when I was the Orange County, Calif., principal of the former architectural firm of Kaufman & Meeks, I thought it was time for my own firm to step up and design something special of which we could take ownership. Since "green" development was beginning to gain traction, I decided that sustainability was the path that I wanted our firm to take, if not all the way to the summit, at least be a trailblazer in that direction.

March, 01 2013

Kevin Newman, CEO of Newman Garrison + Partners, discusses Southern California's multifamily market with Urbanland Magazine.

Three of the firm's current multifamily projects - The Huxley, The Dylan and Park Landing - were featured in the article, which highlighted innovative design solutions for today's rental housing sector.

According to Newman, "It's important for the design profession to assist developers in creating sustainable projects that can be built affordably."

Developing design solutions that meet the challenges created by the recession is a primary focus of NG+P's practice. The firm's "New Block" concept is at the core of this philosophy, which achieves higher densities without the use of concrete garages.

"Architects and designers must continue their vision toward building a better and safer environment, while at the same time understanding the costs that come with sustainable design," commented Newman.

September, 15 2009

Newport Beach, Calif.—Newman Garrison + Partners recently announced a new design approach to address challenges faced by developers, landowners, financial institutions and municipalities. The solution, which the firm is calling New Block, is specifically targeted toward two-acre urban infill sites.

“It’s a concept we started working on 10 to 12 months ago—it’s really related to all of the market conditions we are dealing with,” Kevin Newman, chairman of Newman Garrison + Partners, tells MHN. “We thought it was an opportunity to come up with a concept to deal with those constraints, to put a product on the market that banks would say, ‘we can finance’ and developers say,’ it makes sense to build.’ It’s really a wide range of issues that propelled us to take this course.”
