“Eight Twenty” project adds 38 new homes to the heart of South Pasadena – Mixed-use development is City’s first in four years.

South Pasadena, CA — An intimate enclave of homes is rising on a 1.9-acre site on Mission Street in the heart of downtown South Pasadena, steps from the Metro Gold Line’s Mission Station. The mixed-used EightTwenty project will include 38 residential units consisting of condominiums, lofts and townhomes plus 3,500 square feet of office space, a 7,000 square foot central park and a 3,000 square foot courtyard paseo.

Developed by Intracorp Companies, a West Coast Urban Developer, EightTwenty includes three focal segments: a mix of 2-story condos and single story flats on podium above a level of subterranean parking, with 3,500 square feet of office space fronting Mission Street; the adaptive reuse of an existing three-story 1940’s poured-in place concrete building offering a mix of stacked flats and two-story townhomes (some with private rooftop terrace), and on-grade townhomes with private raised stoops along the northern portion of the site, fronting Magnolia Street.  At the core of the development is a public green space surrounding a 60+year-old Chinese Pistache tree.

The two- and three-bedroom flats and townhomes range from 1,148 to 1,932 square feet, and the two and three bedroom stacked flats and townhomes measure 1,601 to 2,222 square feet. New construction reflects Spanish Revival architectural details that pay homage to South Pasadena’s history, while the 1940’s building maintains its original minimalist concrete façade. The whole EightTwenty site is designed to seamlessly blend into the fabric of the neighborhood.

Set in a city named as one of the 24 best places to live and work in 2014 by Sunset Magazine, boasting a walk score of 95 and served by the desirable South Pasadena Unified School District, the project offers residents a range of desirable amenities in a uniquely community-focused setting.
