One Metro West

Costa Mesa, California

One Metro West is a mixed-use community that brings multifamily residences, creative office space, retail, a park, and an event plaza to Costa Mesa. Located on 15 acres in the northwest corner of the city, adjacent to the 405 Freeway, this development will become the new northern gateway to Costa Mesa.

1,057 residential units distributed across three buildings with distinctive architecture feature an “Equinox”-style 24/7 fitness center, yoga and aerobic studio and wellness room with oxygen stations and cryotherapy, multiple rooftop amenity terraces and open spaces for recreating and lounging. Three resort-style, saltwater swimming pools, including a rooftop junior Olympic-sized pool, all with spas and cabana areas are positioned throughout the master plan. The project also features a 1.7-acre park and event plaza designed to hold intimate musical performances, outdoor theatrical productions, community-sponsored meetings and celebrations. A 25,000 SF “jewel box” creative office with a roof garden and event space within the park is complimented by 6,000 SF of specialty retail.

The architectural character of One Metro West is designed to be timeless. As the project endures, the natural weathering, evolving landscape growth and resident adaptations will rusticate and naturally reveal the true nature of the building – improving the project and community over time. Key components of this elegant but contextual-based design are its clean lines, natural materials and complementary color palettes. The interplay between indoor and outdoor living is witnessed in its variety of social gathering places and roof top terraces. The architecture, location and programming of the spaces invites both the employee or resident to explore the surrounding area, while still creating an intimate place to work or call home.
