Summerhill Apartment Communities has begun work on a 105-unit apartment complex in Pasadena, and just revealed new renderings.

The six-story complex, called the Theo, is located at 289 N. El Molino Avenue. It will have one- and two-bedroom apartments, according to Urbanize, along with 154 parking spaces.

The design by Los Angeles-based KTGY Architecture + Planning includes an elevated courtyard and a series of terraces. Amenities include a pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, and a dog-washing area, according to the firm.

Designers said the building is influenced by the nearby Theodore Parker Lukens House, built in the late 1880s. The project is close to Old Pasadena and the area’s commercial strip along Route 66, as well as access to nearby Interstate 210.

Summerhill Apartment said construction would be completed next August.

Pasadena has some major development projects in its pipeline. Trammel Crow Co. finally secured approvals from Pasadena officials to build its 550-unit rental complex at 3200 E. Foothills Boulevard.

City officials also gave the green light to the ArtCenter College of Design’s major planned expansion, which will include adding up to 1,500 new student housing beds and a 300-seat theater.  [Urbanize] – Dennis Lynch
