The Boulevard

Permanent Supportive Housing, Community Spaces and Services, Commercial Spaces

The Boulevard and 6th Street Grand/ Vista JJ Rodriguez apartments are part of a multi-phased development aimed to support and invigorate the city of Montebello’s effort to revitalize the eastern portion of Whittier boulevard - the city’s historic main street connecting Montebello to DTLA. The community’s vision for Whittier Boulevard is to return the trajectory of residential development back to the downtown area, and to reclaim the historically car-centric corridor to create a flourishing pedestrian commercial environment. High density mixed-use developments envisioned for the revitalized corridor will stand in contrast to the existing low-scale development along the corridor and to the largely one- and two-story residential neighborhoods to its North and South. While The Boulevard is directly on the Whittier corridor, 6th Street Grand occupies an in-fill site on a side street, and at the edge of the residential neighborhood directly south. Basic architectural principles of courtyard building and activated pedestrian edges through programming and amenities are common to both projects. Stepped-down massing offers opportunities for roof terraces and enhanced engagement with the life of the street and courtyard, while moderating scale transition to the older neighborhood fabric.
