Here’s an architect’s rendering of a portion of the under-construction senior apartments at Lemon Avenue and B Street in downtown Ontario.
The complex of 76 units will stand adjacent to the library, senior center and city hall, an especially prime location, not to mention only a block from the shops on Euclid Avenue. (If the seniors love Yangtze, the restaurant’s entrance is less than a block away.)
Architect Dan Withee, of Torrance-based Withee Malcolm Architects, told me at the Oct. 9 ground-breaking that the design was “Wrightian,” referring to Frank Lloyd Wright, clarifying that the arches and other elements are from Wright’s Prairie style phase. In other words, no domes or falling water.
Well, the proof will be in the viewing, but the apartments have gotta have more visual interest than the parking lot they’re replacing.
