Globe St: There Is a Lifestyle Revolution Happening in Hospitality
March, 20 2019

The trend toward more experiential real estate properties has hit retail, office and multifamily, and now hospitality is being redefined.

The trend toward more experiential spaces has been a trademark of this cycle. Retail, office and multifamily have all been redefined by an elevated experience achieved through design, amenities and a focus on community. Now, the hospitality market—a space that has always, at least in theory, created an experience—is undergoing a similar revolution. The hospitality market, including hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues, is focusing on creating a better customer experience.

“Like many other markets, hospitality is ever evolving, making it challenging to both implement timeless trends and stand out amongst competitors,” Kevin Newman, chairman and CEO of architecture firm Newman Garrison and Partners, tells Globest.com. “Right now, we’re seeing that the food and bar scene is heavily driving amenity trends in hospitality—the conversation is shifting from integrated food and beverage to the integration of third party suppliers.”

Newman Garrison and Partners has recently entered the hotel space to work with existing clients to accomplish a lifestyle-forward experience in hotels. “While many upscale hotels currently have a brand standard restaurant concept, we foresee these programmatic demands continuing to diminish and being replaced by more profitable concept-driven restaurants and bars,” says Newman. “We anticipate a similar transition for hotel fitness centers and spas, as well. As these trends evolve rather rapidly, relationship building will become even more important as developers and hotel brands reduce square footage by connecting with third party amenities that better cater to localized demographics.”

Amenities aren’t the only changes shaking up hotel assets. Technology and services are also changing the hotel experience, and owners need to integrate technology seamlessly. “As it does every year, technology is developing exponentially and becoming more valuable and attainable to the masses,” says Newman. “We expect operators and developers to focus on creative design strategies to support and capture increasing demands of tech-savvy group business with immersive VR and hyper-connectivity-ready event spaces in the coming year.”
While consumers are demanding a better experience in the spaces where they spend time, sustainability is also a growing concern. Developers and hotel brands are now prioritizing building practices. “Sustainable and net-zero building practices, will certainly go mainstream in the near future, but not at the cost of convenience,” says Newman. “For instance, we expect to see an increase in guest rooms that are fully customizable down to the last detail.”

This is a lot of changes for the industry, but it is also an opportunity, not only for Newman Garrison but also for hotel brands to capture more occupancy. “As these trends evolve, Newman Garrison + Partners will approach the hospitality market as an opportunity to properly leverage our skill set and relationships in order to make a positive impact on the industry,” says Newman.

Globe St: Where This Investor Is Finding Big Opportunities in Hospitality
March, 15 2019

A lifestyle mindset and demand for creative spaces is creating opportunities to revive hospitality spaces.
By Kelsi Maree Borland

Newman Garrison and Partners is entering the hospitality market. The architecture and design firm is bringing the lifestyle mindset and demand for more creative spaces, which has totally revamped office, multifamily and retail, into the hospitality firm—where it says there is a wealth of opportunities. They plan to work with its longstanding clients on mixed-use hospitality clients.

“Newman Garrison and Partners is inspired to deliver more than just a destination to our clients,” Kevin Newman, chairman and CEO of Newman Garrison and Partners, tells GlobeSt.com. “Approaching our mixed-use and multifamily projects with a broader “lifestyle” mindset, we strive to create meaningful and memorable experiences for the communities we work with—an approach that mirrors that of the hospitality market. As leaders in the industry with heightened market awareness, we look forward to changing the landscape of the mixed-use and multifamily industries as we continue implementing both practical and upscale amenities, while also bringing our lifestyle and experience-focused approach to hospitality.”

This cycle, every asset class has been transformed by cultural changes and a preference for experiential and creative spaces. Office spaces have become more open and flexible; multifamily assets have become more amenitized with spaces that cultivate a community atmosphere; and retail has become focused on creating a unique customer experience that cannot be duplicated online. “We look at our foray into the hospitality market as an opportunity to transform physical spaces into integrated experiences for perhaps an even broader demographic,” says Newman. “In all of our work, we strive to achieve a strong alignment and balance of business metrics and design goals, which opens up the doors for very close internal and external collaboration—an aspect of our work that we greatly value and enjoy.”

Newman says that trend forecasting and integrated collaboration will be a crucial element of the firm’s approach to hospitality. “Staying ahead of trends and understanding the demands of the hospitality market will help us to achieve the success we have met in the mixed-use/multifamily industries,” he explains. “As we embrace the increasing demand of hospitality components in our mixed-use developments, we will draw from our deep lifestyle design expertise to create experiences for our clients that meet the needs of varying use-groups.”

In the first 12 months, Newman Garrison will focus on mixed-use hospitality projects and working with existing clients. “Our goals are to advance the many mixed-use hospitality-centric opportunities already on the boards with our existing, long-standing clients,” says Newman. “We also aim to continue seeking out opportunities to build new relationships with other forward-thinking developers.”

Los Angeles Daily News: High-end Warner Center development hopes to attract millennials, young professionals
December, 31 2018

About a year after breaking ground, the firm that designed a high-profile Warner Center development released renderings and construction photos of Q East, one of five Q developments in Woodland Hills.

Architectural firm Newman Garrison + Partners released renderings that feature the complex located on the intersection of Erwin Street and Variel Avenue, directly across from one of the other firm’s Q projects, Q on Erwin.

The company hopes the complex “will attract millennials, young professionals and bi-coastal residents to the Woodland Hills area,” according to its statement.

The 241-unit high-end development is bounded by Erwin Street to the south and Variel Avenue to the west.

In addition to the residential area, the development will offer 46,345 square feet of retail, restaurants, commercial and office space and live and work units.

Residents will be offered a full service concierge and valet at the lower level. Other amenities include a roof-top deck overlooking a pool, an indoor-outdoor poolside club and lounge, game room, gourmet teaching kitchen and yoga studio.

The project will include about 8,572 square feet of outdoor open space that becomes a gathering place for visitors and residents.

The project has been designed in accordance with the Warner Centre Specific Plan, a widely criticized project, which calls to expand apartment construction in a 1.5 square-mile area from fewer than 9,000 to more than 26,000 without offering any affordably units.

SFVBJ: Design of Fourth Q Building in Warner Center Unveiled
December, 17 2018

Architecture and design firm Newman Garrison + Partners has released images for its Q East, one of five Q developments in partnership with Canoga Park-based California Home Builders currently under construction in Woodland Hills.

The fourth building in the Q network to be announced by the Costa Mesa firm, the Warner Center mixed-use luxury building will occupy the intersection of Erwin Street and Variel Avenue, directly across from the in-progress Q on Erwin, which was announced last week. Still pending is the fifth Q, named Q at DeSoto, at DeSoto and Erwin.

Similar in design and features to its Q network counterparts, Q East, with its 241 units, stands on 3.22 acres and includes 46,345 square feet of commercial and retail space and roughly 8,572 square feet of outdoor space.

Amenities will include a poolside lounge, gourmet teaching kitchen, game room and outdoor lounge with TV screens and a fireplace. There will also be a 7,500-square-foot fitness and yoga studio. A raised two-story creative office space with a rooftop terrace will overlook the plaza below.

“Since there are five Q developments, the challenge has been to create different lifestyle amenities within each development while staying true to the overall brand,” architect Kevin Newman of Newman Garrison told the Business Journal. “Each development is consistent with a specific lifestyle approach, each project is carefully designed to promote diversity within the brand.”

The goal of California Home Builders and Newman Garrison + Partners with the Q endeavor is to tap into the millennials market of young professionals and bi-coastal residents, according to Newman.

SFVBJ: Another Q Building Planned for Warner Center
December, 05 2018

Architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners has shared its first look at the Q at Erwin, its latest project in a network of mixed-use residential buildings, all called Q, in Warner Center under development by California Home Builders in Canoga Park.

Construction is slated to begin in 2020 and end in 2023 for the seven-story residential tower.

“Q at Erwin continues to embody the ultimate lifestyle approach that is fast becoming part of the Q branding network,” Newman Garrison Principal Kevin Newman told the Business Journal.

Q at Erwin will consist of 110,000 square feet of property at Erwin and Variel, just east of Westfield’s Topanga and Village malls.

“Q at Erwin will become the third development on Erwin; the other two are Q East, at the opposite corner of Erwin and Variel, while Q at De Soto will anchor the intersection of De Soto and Erwin,” Newman explained.

The structure will feature five levels of wood-frame construction above a concrete base. The building will have 259 residential units, above ground-floor commercial space and 493 parking spaces.

On the commercial side, the development will feature 51,684 square feet of restaurant and retail space and 17,993 square feet in amenity areas, including a central courtyard with swimming pool and multiple lounge areas.

With plans unveiled for the Q at Erwin, four of the five buildings in the Q queue have been announced. Each of the hotel-like residential developments promises to deliver full concierge service and valet parking and socially oriented amenities, such as rooftop lounges with sky terraces, wine rooms, screening rooms, large fitness facilities, which include social lounges, massage rooms, yoga, Pilates and spin classes, among others.

Curbed LA: First look at 259-unit apartment building planned for Warner Center
December, 04 2018

The apartments would sit above lots of ground-floor shops
By Bianca Barragan

Warner Center’s busy development landscape might be getting even busier. A new 259-unit apartment complex is planned for the Erwin Street at Variel Avenue, according to architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners.

Newman Garrison is designing the seven-story building for developer California Home builders. Plans call for almost 52,000 square feet of restaurants and shops on the ground floor.

Called Q at Erwin, the building would feature a mix of live and work lofts, as well as studio, one, two-, and three-bedroom apartments ranging from approximately 600 to 1,500 square feet.

Resident amenities would include a central courtyard with a pool, a “multi-story” gym, and multiple lounges.

Construction is slated to begin in 2020, with completion scheduled for 2023.

California Home Builders is on a spree in Warner Center. The developer has more than 600 units under construction now in two projects in the neighborhood. The company is also planning a mid-rise building with 350 apartments and 206 apartments with a possible 24-story tower in the next two years.

Warner Center has seen a burst of residential development since late 2013, when the city approved a new plan to steer development in the area. About 2,500 housing units have been approved for the 1.5-square-mile area since then, but none of them are affordable.

That has local officials, including Los Angeles City Councilmember Bob Blumenfield, who represents the area, questioning if the city should require new developments in the neighborhood to build some less-than-market-rate housing.

Urbanize LA: 241-Unit Q East Development Makes Progress in Warner Center
November, 30 2018

More than a year after breaking ground in Warner Center, construction of California Home Builders' Q East apartments has now progressed to the fourth floor above ground. The mixed-use development, located at the northeast corner of Erwin Street and Variel Avenue, will stand seven stories tall at completion, featuring 241 residential units atop a parking garage and ground-floor retail space.

The project, designed by Newman Garrison + Partners, will also feature amenities including a rooftop lounge and a swimming pool. Completion is expected in 2019.

California Home Builders has emerged as one of the most aggressive developers in Warner Center. In addition to Q East, the Canoga Park-based firm is also building a sister project known as Q West on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. At least two additional developments are also in the planning stages.

Urbanize LA:First Look at the Q on Erwin
November, 26 2018

California Home Builders has yet another mixed-use development in the works for Warner Center.

Canoga Park-based developer California Home Builders is cooking up plans for yet another mixed-use project in Warner Center.

The latest project, called the Q on Erwin, would rise from a 110,000-square-foot site at the southeast corner of Erwin Street and Variel Avenue, replacing a trio of single-story industrial buildings. Plans call for the construction of a seven-story building, featuring 269 residential units above ground-floor commercial space and 493 parking spaces located in a basement and above-grade garage.

Newman Garrison + Partners is designing the podium-type development, which would consist of five levels of wood-frame construction above a concrete base. The design places a steel-and-glass element spanning the first four floors at the intersection of Erwin and Variel, which transitions to a more subdued style moving away from the corner.

Architectural diagrams also indicate plans for ground-floor live/work units fronting an alley at the eastern side of the property, as well as a central courtyard featuring a swimming pool and lounge areas.

California Home Builders has emerged as the most prolific developer of mixed-use and multifamily residential projects in the Warner Center area. In addition to the Q on Erwin, the company is now building a similar project across the street, and has plans for a third project on an abutting property at Erwin and De Soto Street

Building Design & Construction: MULTIGENERATIONAL LIVING 'REIMAGINES' VACANT CHURCH SITE
October, 10 2018

Wesley Village, a mixed-use community in Orange County, Calif., features multigenerational housing for families and seniors. The community was built in partnership with the 141-year-old Garden Grove United Methodist Church, the city of Garden Grove, and nonprofit developer Jamboree on the site of a vacant parking lot and unused church land. Wesley Village provides affordable housing for 47 families and seniors, along with 10,000 sf of active open space.

The complex, part of the city’s Re:Imagine Garden Grove program, is formed by two three-story residential buildings—one for seniors (16 units), one for working families (31 units)—and a third building that houses a Head Start learning center, a Boys and Girls Club, an Alzheimer’s care service, the Lestonnac Free Clinic, Project Hope Alliance, and other free educational, health, and wellness services.

A community recreation center has offices, a health clinic, a computer center, a library, and multipurpose rooms. The complex has 20 one-bedroom (813 sf), 11 two-bedroom (885-932 sf), and 15 three-bedroom units (1,126 sf). Wesley Village achieved Gold certification under LEED for Homes.

Urbanize LA: 12 Small Lot Houses to Rise at Silver Lake & Marathon
June, 16 2018

Another development of small lot homes is expected to rise in Silver Lake, according to RSE Capital Partners.

The homes are designed in a Spanish Colonial Revival style by architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners.

RSE provided a $1.4-million equity investment to construct the project, which is being developed by the Riverside-based firm P Joseph Development.

Inhabitat: New Block design offers a low-cost and sustainable solution to urban infill
June, 14 2018

Los Angeles-based architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners has unveiled New Block, a patented “green building solution” for urban developers nationwide. Created with affordability and livability in mind, New Block offers a cost-effective strategy for landowners and developers to maximize density on smaller lots, typically two-acre urban infill sites. Elements such as multi-family housing and an abundance of open space are part of New Block’s long-term sustainable concept.

All architectural units in the New Block design concept would be built with Type V wood-frame construction, while 24,000 square feet would be leftover for usable open space — 45 percent of that as park landscape. The design also includes a green roof system. The concept’s licensing structure allows developers to hire Newman Garrison + Partners or a local architect of their choice to execute the development.

“The difficulties and challenges we face today are quite different than the ones we faced nine years ago,” explained NG+P Chairman Kevin Newman in a statement. “The continuing rise in land costs, construction and materials have created road blocks within the industry to develop and build a more affordable housing type within our urban neighborhoods. New Block is a bridge between lower density three-story garden walk-up apartments and four-story over podium construction typologies, a design concept that ultimately offers developers construction plans that address the constraints surrounding the maximization of density, while meeting the open space and sustainability requirements of smaller land sites at an affordable rate.”

New Block is a proven design concept. In 2010, Irvine-based affordable housing developer Jamboree Housing Corporation and the City of Buena Park tapped Newman Garrison + Partners to apply New Block in a project now known as Park Landing. The project has won 10 industry awards for design excellence as well as LEED Gold certification for its homes.

The fifth Warner Center project from California Home Builders.

APRIL 18, 2018, 8:00AM STEVEN SHARP

Surprise: California Home Builders has unveiled plans for yet another mixed-use development in Warner Center.

The project, located at 21300 Califa Street, is located east of the Westfield Topanga Village shopping center. Plans call for a two-phase development, starting with the construction of a five-story building that would feature 206 one- and two-bedroom apartments and slightly over 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The dwelling units would range from 569 to 1,230 square feet in size, and offer access to amenities such as a rooftop terrace and swimming pool.
The second phase of the development calls for the construction of a 24-story, 218,000-square-foot office tower. A construction timeline for the proposed high-rise building would be determined by market conditions.

Architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners is designing the Califa development with a team that also includes EPT Landscape Architects and KGM Architectural Lighting Designers.
The project has been filed with the City of Los Angeles, and the development team expects feedback in five months.

California Home Builders' other Warner Center projects include Q East, Q West, a proposed 358-unit apartment complex at De Soto and Erwin.

Curbed LA:New Warner Center mixed-use development could bring 24-story tower
April, 17 2018

Plus 206 apartments

It seems like not a week goes by without a new project being proposed for Warner Center. The latest addition to the jam-packed roster of developments planned in the neighborhood is a California Home Builders mixed-use project near Oxford Street and Canoga Avenue.

The development at 21300 Califa Street would include two structures, one residential and one of office space. Both would be designed by the architecture and planning firm Newman Garrison + Partners.

The residential building would be a five-story mixed-user with a total of 206 rentals—a mix of studios, one- and two-bedrooms, and live/work units. The dwellings would range from 569 to 1,230 square feet.

The second building in the project would take the form of a 24-story tower, containing nearly 220,000 square feet of office space.

The project, which would span more than 2 acres, will need city approval before construction can start. Developers expect to construct the buildings in two phases, with the residential component as phase one.

Not far from this proposed project, another development, with 1,000 apartments and condos, is planned. That development, near DeSoto and Burbank avenues, would also include a 24-story hotel and a trio of 15-story office buildings, says developer Adler Realty.

To the north of Oxford Avenue, a project with 274 apartments and a 12-story office building is in the works.

California Home Builders and Newman Garrison + Partners are also working on two projects in the area that, together, would hold almost 600 apartments.

Curbed LA: First look at big new Warner Center mixed-user
March, 09 2018

Over 350 Residential and Hotel Units.

Warner Center’s got a steady stream of new apartments in the pipeline. This mixed-use project, which was announced in November 2017, will bring over 350 units to a site occupied by a 1970s-era commercial building.
The project is set to rise at the northwest corner of De Soto Avenue and Erwin Street, according to a release from Newman Garrison + Partners, which is designing the complex.

The developer, California Home Builders, plans 352 residential units on the site: six studio apartments, 210 one-bedrooms, 110 two-bedrooms, five three-bedrooms, and 11 live/work units. The complex will also hold nine hotel rooms.

About 13,000 square feet of retail and restaurants and roughly 25,000 square feet of creative office space will be incorporated into the project, as well as a pool and outdoor space for residents. Landscape architecture for the project was by EPT Design, with lighting by KGM Lighting.

A release from the developer indicates that the complex is intended to appeal to the existing community in the area as well as “millennials, bicoastal renters, couples and singles.”

The project is expected to begin construction next year.

California Home Builders has two projects underway nearby that would bring a combined total of nearly 600 apartments to Warner Center. One, Q East, will bring 241 apartments to Erwin and Variel avenues. The other, Q West, would rise across from the Westfield Topanga mall, and hold 347 apartments.

The Warner Center in Woodland Hills, Calif. will be home to two new mixed-used, luxury apartments known as Q East and Q West.

The mixed-use site would include 358 apartments
November 15, 2017 04:00PM

Developer California Home Builders filed plans today to build its third mixed-use project at 6109 N. De Soto Avenue in Warner Center, Urbanize reported.

Warner Center as an urban millennial playground? Woodland Hills projects are tapping that vibe
November, 15 2017

By OLGA GRIGORYANTS | ogrigoryants@scng.com | Los Angeles Daily News
PUBLISHED: November 15, 2017 at 7:45 am | UPDATED: November 15, 2017 at 7:08 pm

Two sprawling mixed-use real-estate developments are under way in Woodland Hills as developers search for ways to add apartments, office space and retail to Warner Center.

Their goal is to transform it into a more urbanized hub for a generation that want to live, work and play in the San Fernando Valley.

“There is a need to provide people with what they need for the lifestyle that is available to those who don’t want to go to the Westside or downtown (L.A.),” said Shawn Evenhaim, the founder and chief executive of Canoga Park-based California Home Builders. “These projects will be in line with a plan to create the urban lifestyle with a lot of walkability in this area.”

Two 7-story buildings, named Q East and Q West, will be located at 6200 Variel Ave. and 6263 Topanga Canyon Blvd., less than a mile from each other.

They’ll add new apartments, offices and retail shops to the district, helping turn it into a more densely populated neighborhood that blends workplaces and residential units.

Both developments will be a few blocks away from the Promenade Mall, the Warner Center Business Park and the Orange Line’s Canoga Station.

The Q East will house 241 units and more than 50,000 square feet of non-residential commercial space. Q West will have 347 units and over 18,000 square feet of non-residential commercial space.

Those units will include studios and 1- and 2-bedroom apartments. Rooftop decks will top the buildings, overseeing poolside clubs and outdoor lounges. Inside, developers are planning fitness studios and saunas.

The construction underway now is expected to be complete by 2020.

Nearly 600 apartments coming to Warner Center via a pair of mixed-use developments

Coming online as soon as 2019

By Bianca Barragan Nov 9, 2017, 11:58am PST
The steady stream of new projects proposed for or underway in the Valley’s Warner Center neighborhood continues, and we’re getting a closer look at two projects that will bring almost 600 apartments total to the neighborhood.

The two new complexes, called Q East and Q West, will be developed by California Home Builders and designed by architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners, a representative for the architects told Curbed.

The Q East development would rise at Erwin Street and Variel Avenue, while Q West would be across from Westfield Topanga mall, facing Topanga Canyon Boulevard. The seven-story Q East would have 241 apartments and approximately 46,000 square feet of retail and commercial space on its ground floor, along with restaurants and a number of live/work lofts.

Q West would hold 347 apartments and just under 20,000 square feet of commercial and residential space along the street. Both complexes are geared toward attracting the desirable “young professionals and millennials” market. Each apartment building will feature resident amenities including a rooftop deck, a pool, and outdoor lounges with fireplaces and TVs.

Q East is already under construction, with an expected opening in 2019. The site for Q West has been razed, and construction is expected to begin before the end of the year.

Both complexes were designed with the Warner Center Specific Plan in mind. The plan lays out guidelines for development in the community through 2035 and aims to create a walkable, transportation-friendly, and generally more hip neighborhood.

Canoga Park-based California Home Builders is moving forward with plans to construct a pair of mixed-use developments in Warner Center, one of which would rise across the street from the Village at Westfield Topanga Canyon.

The projects, known as Q East and Q West, are being designed by architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners. Q East would rise at the northeast corner of Erwin Street and Variel Avenue, while Q West will face Topanga Canyon Boulevard.

The contemporary podium-type buildings will combine to create 562 apartments and approximately 60,000 square feet of retail and office space, in addition to an array of amenities that includes multiple courtyards, roof decks, and swimming pools. According to Newman Garrison, both properties are being marketed towards young professionals and millennials.

Construction of Q East is already underway, with completion expected in early 2019. Site preparation has already finished for Q West, and full construction is set to begin before the end of 2017.

Both projects are driven by the Warner Center 2035 Plan, which imagines the longtime business hub as a more traditional Downtown, featuring mixed-use buildings with active ground floors. A number of multifamily residential developments have already been approved under the plan, and potential high-rise campuses are set to follow, replacing the Westfield Promenade shopping center and the Warner Center Corporate Park.

CURBED LA: THE ELYSIAN PARK LOFTS - A closer look at the long skinny project that would bring 920 units to Chinatown.
November, 03 2017

About a year ago, developers filed new plans for a long-dormant project just above the newly reopened Los Angeles State Historic Park. Now, via planning documents, we’re getting a better idea of how the slender project would use the site, which curves around the park.
Developers, S & R Partners, are calling the proposed mixed-used project The Elysian Park Lofts.

The Lofts, designed by Newman Garrison + Partners, would be broken up into two sections connected by a new public park, renderings show. In total, the development would hold 920 residential units, including 17 live/work units.

The Lofts development would also hold about 18,000 square feet of retail and restaurants and roughly 1,800 parking spaces in an underground garage. In addition to the park that links the two ends of the site, the Lofts would have other open space in the form of public plazas and resident-only outdoor areas.

The six buildings on-site would range from seven to 14 stories tall, not including a two-story resident amenity center with a pool and lounge.

The property at 1030 North Broadway and 1251 North Spring Street is now in use as a staging area for buses and vehicle and equipment storage, planning documents say.

The build-out of the Lofts is imagined as a two-phase process, with the section closest to Chinatown being built first, and the section closest to Elysian Park being built second.

October, 11 2017

Newman Garrison + Partners will design the high-profile project in Burbank, Calif. The apartment community targeted towards Millennials will feature market-rate and affordable units.
by Evelyn Jozsa | Oct 11, 2017

Cusumano Real Estate Group selected Newman Garrison + Partners to design Olive Stations, a 324-unit apartment community in Burbank, Calif. This is the first multifamily transit-oriented development in the city’s industrial area and one of the first residential projects to be built in Burbank in over fifteen years. The community is slated for completion by 2021.

Located at 2021 West Olive Ave., the property aims to offer Millennials working in the San Fernando Valley a residential opportunity that is within walking distance from a train stop. The many shopping and dining options on San Fernando Boulevard are also easy to reach. Olive Stations comprises studios, one- and two-bedroom units as well as a few three- and four-bedroom apartments, in order to provide more affordable shared-housing options. The high-end asset will include both market rate and affordable housing units.

Communal spaces will feature amenities such as:
• retail stores
• organic grocery offerings
• terrace amenities
• outdoor movie theater
• bocce ball course
• fitness center
• club/lounge area with game room
• media center
• resort-style pool
• spa with cabanas
• outdoor dining and barbecue areas

“It is an honor to have been trusted with the opportunity to work on this enticing project of developing a property that has been owned by the Cusumano family since the 1970’s. We look forward to seeing this collaboration develop as we move through this innovative venture,” said Michael Cusumano of Cusumano Real Estate Group, in prepared remarks.

A new transit-friendly apartment complex may be on the way to Burbank, just west of the city’s Metrolink station, according to an announcement from architecture firm Newman Garrison + Partners, which has been selected to design the project.

Developed by Cusumano Real Estate Group, the development would rise seven stories and include 327 units of housing, ranging from studios to three and four-bedroom apartments. The project would have a mix of market rate and affordable units, though it’s not clear how much of each would be included.

Retail space and room for “organic grocery offerings” would also be part of the project, which is geared toward “millennials working in the San Fernando Valley,” according to the announcement.

Other building amenities would include a swimming pool and spa, a lounge and game room, an outdoor movie theater, a wine room, a media center, fire pits, and a bocce ball course.

Renderings of the project show it would have a glassy design, with plenty of terraces and balcony space throughout the complex. If all goes according to plan, the project could open by 2021.

Newman Garrison + Partners Selected to Work Alongside Cusumano Group in High Profile New Multi-family Project in Burbank
October, 06 2017

Newman Garrison + Partners, an award-winning architectural firm located in the greater Los Angeles area, has been selected by Cusumano Real Estate Group to work on Olive Stations, the first multi-family TOD project to enter Burbank’s industrial area, and one of the first apartment developments to be built in the city in over 15 years.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) OCTOBER 06, 2017
Newman Garrison + Partners, an award-winning architectural firm located in the greater Los Angeles area, has been selected by Cusumano Real Estate Group to work on Olive Stations, the first multi-family TOD project to enter Burbank’s industrial area, and one of the first apartment developments to be built in the city in over 15 years.

With this new endeavor, Newman Garrison + Partners aims to present millennials working in the San Fernando Valley with a unique residential opportunity that is walking distance to the train stop as well as San Fernando Boulevard’s multiple shopping and dining destinations. Comprised of 327 units, the complex will offer studios, one- and two-bedrooms, along with a few three- and four-bedrooms, in order to provide more affordable shared-housing options. The luxury property will include both market rate and affordable housing units. The Olive Stations common spaces will also feature retail stores, organic grocery offerings, terrace amenities, outdoor movie theatre, bocce ball course, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center, club/lounge area with game room, private wine room and media center for entertaining and activities. In addition, a resort-style pool and spa with cabanas, outdoor dining/BBQ areas and fire pits will provide the ultimate in luxury living and convenience.
“It is an honor to have been trusted with the opportunity to work on this enticing project of developing a property that has been owned by the Cusumano family since the 1970’s. We look forward to seeing this collaboration develop as we move through this innovative venture," says Michael Cusumano.

While Burbank’s industrial area has up until now been predominantly occupied by car dealerships, metal fabrication, and flooring companies, Nickelodeon’s recent move to the area, which employs roughly 700 employees, resulted in an incentive to start revitalizing the property. As a nod to Burbank’s past and history, the industrial contemporary look of the site will be reflected in the architecture and design of the space, and will include elements that are reminiscent of Burbank’s history, such as Joseph Fawkes’s 1910 vision of the experimental monorail. The project is slated to open by 2021.

The building was developed by Hines Developers and designed by architects Newman Garrison + Partners. They say their design is an “ode” to Edward Durell Stone’s Stuart building, which is nextdoor. Built in 1958, the Stuart building was named that year as one of the five best designs by the American Institute of Architects.

The Ellington’s website advertises studios apartments starting at $2,175. One-bedroom apartments, the smallest of which offer only a bit more space than the studios, start at $2,232. Residents have access to amenities that include a dog spa and shared outdoor courtyards and terraces.

"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.

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

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.

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.”
