Wilshire Skyline, Kings Arch Break Ground for Adaptive Reuse of Office Building in Santa Monica

by Amy Works

SANTA MONICA, CALIF. — Wilshire Skyline, in partnership with Kings Arch Inc., has broken ground on the restoration and adaptive reuse of a landmarked building located at 1305 Second St. in Santa Monica.

KFA designed the renovation of the three-story building that was built in 1914. The project will provide new spaces for commercial office tenants. Exterior renovations will include adding ground-floor window awnings, providing new landscaping around the property and rehabilitating the exterior brick finishes and site paving. The existing windows will be rehabilitated, as well as the cornice and corbel details along the roofline of the building, which will be repainted and repaired as required.

Additionally, a new roof deck area, providing an amenity for future commercial office tenants, will be created adjacent to the existing penthouse. The surface parking will be updated to provide two loading spaces, an accessible parking space and 10 tenant parking spaces.
