Rancho Cucamonga-based National CORE is the project developer. Onyx Architects is responsible for the designs.

Two years ago, National CORE’s proposal was selected by the City of Pasadena. The winning submission beat out competing proposals from Abode Communities and BRIDGE Housing. The project was envisioned as a five-story building featuring 112 apartments, all reserved for seniors making 50 percent or less than the area median income. The building also featured a basement parking for 50 vehicles.

The final plan retains a similar style to the winning proposal announced in October 2020, but returns as a slightly smaller 106-unit building. The design for 280 Ramona has evolved over multiple hearings before the Commission, adding new refinements and modulation to the building facade, while also cutting subterranean parking for financial reasons.

New renderings reveal a U-shaped building in the Mediterranean Revival style, centered on an open-air courtyard. The building features a chamfered facade at its southeast corner facing Centennial Plaza, as well as setbacks to match the street wall of surrounding buildings.

The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
