Talmadge Gateway Mixed-Use

Orchid Icon  Orchid

Talmadge Gateway has “do the right thing” written all over it. It provides 60 brand new studio apartments to at-risk seniors, in addition to onsite counseling and medical care – and it saved a locally significant nightclub to boot. The developer and designer team responded to community preferences for a building that paid homage to the area’s heritage of Art Deco by creating a curvaceous, stream lined building that activates the sidewalk and the skyline.

The new structure includes a new retail lease space begging to become a coffee shop or juice bar. The developer also saved and refreshed the beloved Til Two Club on El Cajon Boulevard… a venue with a past and a new lease on life. This project should be recognized as sensitive infill development that has a heart – for our older neighbors and our threatened local landmarks. Well done!

    It would be really nice for we at risk seniors if the heat actually worked. The air conditioning would be a benefit.
