5th & Harbor’s 4-story California contemporary design features 94 residential units and 11,000 sf of commercial space. The mixed-use development encourages commerce, interaction, and recreation, revitalizing a traditionally underserved neighborhood of Santa Ana. Retail uses on the ground floors of the active streets are charming, small scale, and porous, providing a lively and safe pedestrian atmosphere. In place of one solid block, the massing is articulated with projected balconies and complementary fenestration patterns. Situated on a 3-sided lot, the public plaza focuses on robust community involvement, with a prominent side of the building set aside for future public art.
