ORIGINAL SAKs beverly hills
The heart of the project is the restoration of the elegant and iconic exterior of Saks Beverly Hills to its former splendor and adaptive reuse of its interiors for new purposes.
The main body of the historic building will house a boutique hotel with no more than fifty keys, alongside ground-floor restaurants and a social club that will offer entertainment, personalized lectures and curated experiences.
The public will continue to be welcomed at the new, by-appointment 5-star spa.
The restoration of Saks Beverly Hills will meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
Office Building B
The one-story Shoe Department next to the restored Saks Beverly Hills building will be a seven-story Class-A office building. The design challenge was to make sure the new building works to elevate the timeless Saks Beverly Hills, not compete with it.
A street level café wraps around from Wilshire Boulevard to Bedford Drive, creating a new amenity for the residential neighborhood to the south.
NEW SAKS BEVERLY HILLS
By moving its women’s store into the former Barneys location, Saks Beverly Hills can continue to deliver an elevated luxury shopping experience without having to close for a multi-year renovation.
The new Saks Beverly Hills women’s store will be bright, exciting and glamorous.
The men’s store will remain in its current location.
The adaptive reuse of Barneys brings this shuttered retail cornerstone back to life. It preserves Saks’ presence in Beverly Hills with a modern redesigned store reflecting the expectations of the Saks customer.
Office Building A
Next to the new Saks will be a six-story office building, detailed in a green weathered copper finish. Rather than build a traditional concrete or steel structure, the construction will use heavy wooden structural members. Wood, a sustainable resource, reduces the overall carbon footprint of the building. Street life will be activated by a new high-end restaurant.
West Peck Residences
The asphalt parking lots behind the restored original Saks Beverly Hills building will become the first luxury apartments built in Beverly Hills in decades, with up to 70 units between two buildings. East and West Peck residences will be six-stories, with code parking for residents and guests. The new residences provide a transition and buffer between the residential neighborhood to the south and the commercial corridor of Wilshire Boulevard.
East Peck Residences
Like the West Peck Residences, the asphalt parking lot behind the new Saks Beverly Hills women’s store will become luxury apartments. The East Peck Residential building faces the West Residences on Peck. This six-story building also has city required parking for residents and guests. As with West Peck, there is setback from the street, and rich landscaping that pulls the green of the neighborhood to the south up to Wilshire Boulevard. The alley that runs on the southern edge will be rebuilt and replanted and layered with landscaping.
Investing in Streetscapes
The sidewalks and streets adjacent to the properties, Bedford, Peck, and Camden will be designed to reflect a high sense of style and community charm. These extensive street improvements will include traffic-calming features to slow cars coming into the neighborhood and will promote a better pedestrian experience.
