Another Successful Tour

Lowney Architect Tony Valadez led a hard hat tour of Lowney's Chow Oakland on Saturday, September 24th. Participants learned about this unique project which includes a hybridized program: part food market, part restaurant, part café, and part commercial bakery, and which intentionally blurs the line between interior and exterior. The project is an adaptive re-use of and addition to an existing building with (almost) every type of construction represented: masonry, cast in place concrete, original wood and sheathing, new dimensional and engineered lumber, and existing and new steel. Construction is slated to be done in January 2017.

Tour of the Orchards Just Days Before Grand Opening

On September 8th, the Urban Land Institute hosted a project walkthrough and discussion just days prior to the Grand Opening of the Safeway at the Orchards. The design team, including Lowney Architecture, Jett Landscape Design, Miller Starr Regalia Legal and Terramar Retail Centers led two dozen participants through a two-hour tour of the new retail center. Thanks to Steven Lawton, Chair of the ULI Programs Committee for this informative opportunity.
