Pasadena has approved a major mixed-use development and likely one of the last of its kind in the market. 3200 East Foothill will transform an 8.5-acre site and former naval testing facility in east Pasadena into a 550-unit mixed-use complex, which will feature 70 affordable units, two live-work lofts, ground floor retail space and a public park that connects and engages the community. Steinberg Hart’s Urban Mixed-Use practice is leading the design on the project.

“Because this site has been walled off for some many years, we wanted to create a community that integrated our neighbors to the north,” Simon Ha, head of Steinberg Hart’s Urban Mixed-Use practice, tells GlobeSt.com about the firm’s vision for the project. “Initially, we had three values that we wanted to serve: connect, engage and enhance. Connect and engage were focused on connecting to the neighborhood to the north. The solution was to provide a neighborhood amenity that can be used by the neighbors. We created an urban park that people can walk to. That was the genesis of the site plan.”
