Walnut Creek Transit Village: Inspired by the Confluence of Urbanism, Transit and Nature
The East Bay’s premier retail destination is about to become an even bigger draw with the new Walnut Creek Transit Village, a mixed-use development in Walnut Creek, California. Inspired by the convergence of urbanism, transit and nature, JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE’s design for the interiors will create the connection between rail, station and nature in a quality residential and retail hub that fosters commuter connectivity to the entire Bay Area.
With views of Mt. Diablo and direct pedestrian access to the Bay Area Rapid Transit system, BART, phase one of The Village will include 358 homes and extensive amenities, including a Great Hall, expanded fitness, athleisure lounge, bike club, summit library, private dining, kid’s space, rooftop deck, pool deck and courtyard, and paseo.
Hotel Colorado Gets Renovated Following 125th Birthday
The historic Hotel Colorado has a few changes in store for its 125th year. The JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE team will be redesigning the guest rooms and public spaces of the hotel to revitalize it for a new generation of guests. The hotel, which was built in 1893 next to the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs, was modeled after the Villa De Medici in Florence, Italy. Today, it has 130 rooms and suites, two on-site spas and two ballrooms.
The hotel has seen visits from famous guests including two U.S. presidents, Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft, as well as Al Capone and Molly Brown. An avid outdoorsman, Roosevelt was particularly fond of Colorado and favored the Hotel Colorado for his visits. In fact, the hotel became the temporary home of the President and his assistants during a three-week bear hunting expedition.
