Office Asset Opens in Santa Monica

Office Asset Opens in Santa Monica
Asset: 1650 Euclid is a 65,000-square-foot creative office building.

A brand-new creative office development has debuted in Santa Monica. Pasadena-based construction and management firm C.W. Driver Cos. has completed 1650 Euclid St. – a three-story office complex offering tenants 65,000 square feet of high-end commercial space. Santa Monica-based Redcar Properties is its owner.

The project, designed by House & Robertson Architects Inc., consists of a sleek, aluminum and steel building separated into two distinct wings. The wings are connected by a glass-enclosed bridge.

Acknowledging the various struggles that the office market is facing in retaining tenants, C.W. Driver said that it approached the building’s design to appeal to the modern office-goer.

“Our work on 1650 Euclid is a great example of a modern and functional approach to commercial office space,” Karl Kreutziger, president at C.W. Driver Cos., said in a statement. “Office tenants today are searching for more open-air, social environments with courtyards, terraces and rooftops that invite creative collaboration. This new office complex is sure to set the tone for the neighborhood.”

Ultimately an infill project, replacing an undeveloped space that formerly housed an auto tow lot, the addition of this mixed-use office building reflects the improvements taking hold in the Memorial Park area of Santa Monica.

The complex features a pedestrian-friendly courtyard at street level, a social rooftop terrace and a two-level 40,000-square-foot parking garage below ground.

According to the company, the upper floors at 1650 Euclid St. are intended for creative office use with interior space that provides the opportunity for multiple tenant configurations, including rooftop and exterior decks and clerestories.

Some of C.W. Driver Cos. other local commercial office projects include Euclid Creative Office, a recently completed three-story, 36,700-square-foot mixed-use development located in Santa Monica for The Friedkin Group and a three-story, 325,000-square-foot mixed-use development located at 1000 Seaward St. in Hollywood for Plus Development, which is in preconstruction.
