Theo – New Apartment on the Rise Near Old Town Pasadena
September 18, 2017
KTGY Architecture + Planning has unveiled a rendering for the Theo, a new multifamily residential complex now under construction at 289 N. El Molino Avenue in Pasadena.
The project, which comes from Summerhill Apartment Communities, consists of a six-story building feature 105 residential units in addition to open space amenities at the roof and podium levels. Plans call for a mixture of one- and two-bedroom units, some of which will have townhome-style entrances on the street.
The Theo is named for its next-door neighbor – the Theodore Parker Lukens House – a 19th century Victorian home that is among the oldest in Pasadena. Summerhill and KTGY worked with Pasadena Heritage and the City of Pasadena Design Community to create a Modernist building to complement its historic surroundings, featuring stepped building heights, private terraces and open space amenities facing the adjacent home. A parking garage – with accommodations for 154 vehicles – is located entirely underground.
Summerhill started construction on the podium-type development last month and expects to open the building in August 2019.
