THE PLAZA AT SANTA MONICA

The Plaza at Santa Monica is Metropolitan Pacific’s proposed development for the City owned
parcel on Arizona Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets in downtown Santa Monica. After extensive

public open space, abundant public benefits, and a captivating architectural design by the Office
of Metropolitan Architecture, an internationally renowned design studio headed by Rem
Koolhaas.

and play in downtown.

CRITERION AT THE PROMENADE

The Criterion on the Promenade project was an adaptive reuse of a building that was originally built
in two phases in the early 1980’s and the mid 1990’s. In 2014, the main portion of the building was
completely demolished and all interior floors were removed. A new building was built inside the
existing shell, inclusive of a new steel and concrete structural system, floors and roof, as well as new
mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, resulting in an effectively new building.

The tenancy of the completed project is :

  • 26,100 SF flagship Victoria’s Secret

  • 4,100 SF Brookstone
  • 32 residential units
