The shopping center next to Q’s Billiards, Bruhaus, and Cabo Cantina on Wilshire Boulevard, just east of Santa Monica, will undergo a dramatic, $10-million facelift over the next 10 months.
The 1980s facade will be stripped away and given a contemporary treatment. Renderings show a wavy, metallic exterior; the storefronts will be clad in backlit metal screens and stucco, says Noel Fedosh, an architect with Los Angeles-based Landry Design Group, which is helming the redesign. (Fedosh says the metal screens will have a matte finish so they won’t be overly reflective).
The remodel will also include replacing a surface level parking lot with a pedestrian plaza that will include a water feature and bridge. Check it out:
