completing a 100-year-old vision in Old Pasadena

Central Park Apartments completes Colonel G.G. Green’s 1903 vision for The Hotel Green and transforms a surface parking lot into a mixed-use development that will connect Central Park with Old Pasadena. The plan is being developed by Goldrich Kest, a property owner in Pasadena since 1971. The project will bring new housing units and ground floor retail in an artfully designed building inspired by the 1903 vision for the property, complementing the adjacent Green Hotel Apartments and Castle Green.

DELIVERS NEEDED HOUSING IN PASADENA

Central Park Apartments will provide 84 housing units, including affordable units, plus four live-work lofts facing the park. These new housing units will help meet a tremendous and growing housing need in the City.

GATEWAY TO OLD PASADENA

The plan links the Old Pasadena commercial center to Central Park, establishing a fitting southern gateway for the area. The project’s street-level retail also extends the City’s mixed-use approach to the area.
