WARE MALCOMB ANNOUNCES CONSTRUCTION COMPLETE ON NEW SHADE HOTEL IN REDONDO BEACH
LOS ANGELES (February 22, 2017) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm based in Southern California, today announced that construction is complete on Shade, a new luxury boutique hotel located at 655 North Harbor Drive in Redondo Beach, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided architectural design services for the three-story, 50,700 square foot, 54-room hotel and a separate three-story, 11,600 square foot event building.
Developed by owner and restaurateur Michael Zislis, this is Shade’s second location in one of California’s premier beach communities. The hotel sits on the water’s edge and is located between the marina and the bicycle strand. The original Shade in Manhattan Beach, Calif. is that city’s only luxury boutique hotel and is listed by Condé Nast Traveler as the #6 reason to visit LA.
Both the hotel and event buildings are wood framed with a smooth plaster finish and frosted glass railings throughout. The design incorporates several Shade signature features including whale-bone fins and high sloping roof elements with stainless steel fascias, as well as a granite entry portal to the hotel. In addition to 54 guest rooms, the hotel includes two meeting rooms and break out spaces, and a roof deck pool. The event building includes a sea-level restaurant and lounge, ballroom and roof deck event space.
“This new hotel truly lives up to the extraordinary reputation of the original, while also establishing a distinct presence of its own in Redondo Beach,” said Tom Myers, Principal, Commercial Architecture for Ware Malcomb. “Shade is designed to be a coastal oasis for guests, while also providing an unparalleled special event venue in Southern California.”
The General Contract for the project is Summit DCK.
