Design Achievement – Packing House District is brand new project built to look like a packing house. Once prominent around the city of Redlands, these distribution centers used to be the focal point to both receive and process citrus in San Bernardino County. This project is situated at one of the major entrances to the city from Interstate 10 allowing both locals and travelers a place to eat and shop. DLR Group’s smart urban design is consistent with the specific plan for the city of Redlands to embody agrarian concepts in an urban context. When discussions about this project began in 2007 DLR Group initially designed the project for another client. When this property was sold DLR Group was challenged to reimagine this project to appealed to both the community and the new developer. This project’s new vision was well received by the planning commission and since then has received numerous public endorsements.

Scope Summary – The scope of work for Packing House District includes 87,823 SF distributed into 2 anchor tenants and 5 perimeter multi-tenant buildings. Located at a major entrance to the city, this project will serve as the focal point to a future light rail corridor development. Notable features include to serve both large retailers including Sprouts and small local retail businesses. In addition, this project is composed of landscaped courtyards and hardscape areas that are pedestrian friendly. These programs are framed with local river boulders, indigenous landscaping, brick veneer and water efficient irrigation. Packing House District carefully selects tenants which will promote a balanced lifestyle experience. DLR Group provided architecture and tenant planning services in compliance with Cal Green and the Green Building Code.
