Wells Fargo Office Tower in Santa Ana to Be Transformed into a Live/Work/Play Urban Village


Professional Real Estate Services (PRES) has announced plans to redevelop the existing Wells Fargo office tower property at 2700 Main Street in Santa Ana into a sustainable live-work-play environment whose centerpiece will be a newly constructed, 247-unit contemporary apartment community. The new residential project – called 27 Hundred -- will be part of a new urban village that will also include the retail, dining, and entertainment of the adjacent MainPlace Mall, and the office space within the soon-to-be-redeveloped Wells Fargo Tower.

Designed by TCA Architects, 27 Hundred is the embodiment of the firm’s integrated approach to urban development, outlined recently in a white paper titled, ‘The War on Asphalt’. According to Michael Mindlin, Principal and Studio Director at TCA Architects, “The residential component will be built upon the existing underutilized asphalt parking lot whose sole purpose was to serve the office tower. After evaluating the area from a lifestyle perspective, we’ve re-envisioned the property as a new walkable, sustainable community. Rather than creating a standalone apartment development, 27 Hundred’s design complements the enhanced tower, creating what will be an entirely new walkable community where you can live, work, shop and play.”

Each of the apartment buildings has been uniquely designed to bring a variety of style and proper sense of scale to the surrounding community. The two buildings are separated on the third floor by a central landscaped paseo that runs the length of the community, connecting the elevated garden court at the front of the property to the resort style pool deck, complete with oversized lap pool, linear spa and waterfall that cascades down three stories to the landscaped park at the rear of the community. The outdoor amenities are also thoughtfully situated to take advantage of maximum sunlight.

In addition to community features such as a bicycle storage and repair shop, pet spa, and 7th floor sky terraces on each building, residents of 27 Hundred will enjoy walking to the neighborhood’s abundant retail amenities including 24hr. Fitness, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Corner Bakery, Chipotle, Olive Garden, Starbucks, Subway, Rubio’s, The Habit, Polly’s Pies, and many, many more – not to mention the extensive dining, shopping and entertainment options at the adjacent MainPlace Mall.

Improvements to the office tower will include extensive upgrades to the exterior, central lobby, common areas, and the addition of California style landscaping, and outdoor spaces – in the same design vernacular as the residential component, thereby creating a cohesive sense of place. And not to worry, office tenants will enjoy two levels of secured and covered parking within the new parklike setting.

Construction on the renovation and addition is planned for the first quarter of 2018.
