The One Colorado Development
The award-winning One Colorado project is comprised of an entire city block in the heart of Old Pasadena. Located on Colorado Blvd. between Fair Oaks and De Lacey Avenues, it was the first project to spark the redevelopment of Old Pasadena. The property’s historic architecture, alley, and brick courtyard are filled with dynamic shops, restaurants and public art pieces. One Colorado also plays host to an innovative series of special events, such as outdoor film festivals with films beamed onto one wall of the courtyard, live concerts, as well as various art shows for thousands to enjoy.
The One Colorado Management team led by General Manager Sally Lunetta and Operations Manager Tony Lucero have completed a number of improvements to the buildings and courtyard over the last year in order to preserve and enhance the character and charm of this urban oasis. In April 2008, they power washed, repaired and re-sealed the courtyard brick plaza improving the overall look.
Also, in 2008, the Patagonia Building located along Fair Oaks and Union Street, underwent an extensive exterior brick upgrade preserving the integrity of the facade which dates back to the pre-1900s. In March 2009, the brick exterior of the Crate & Barrel building was painted with a specialized elastomeric paint which was matched to the building’s original historic color.
Recently, the Gold Bug boutique expanded their space and Time Center Watch & Clock Repair moved a few doors down to allow for this. Each store benefited from these changes as evident in both their renovated exterior and interior spaces. All in all, One Colorado’s dedication to both preservation and entertainment make it a fun and exciting place to spend an afternoon or evening with the family.
