Our Plan//

The Miramar will be a new landmark for Downtown Santa Monica. The 4.5-acre site will be transformed, preserving its historic aspects, including the beloved Moreton Bay Fig Tree, while creating a vibrant new site plan. The plan reduces the footprint of the buildings to less than 50% of the property, creating new open space and a public plaza.

Following direction from the public, the Planning Commission and the City Council, we designed a taller building with an east-west orientation. The new Ocean Building will sit majestically at the center of the site, balancing the tall neighboring buildings to the immediate north and south while stepping down on the eastern end to respond to the scale of the Huntley Hotel. The plan minimizes view impacts from neighboring buildings to the east and puts the scale of the proposed project in context with the nearby hotel, condominium and office buildings. The plan will be significantly less dense than the surrounding buildings.
