The Continental on West Cedar Street is made up of 42 studios that average 380 square feet, a single family 3 bedroom residence, and ground level commercial space.
The project is the vision of father-son duo Jonathan and Matthew Segal, who designed and developed the building together. The concept: renters will be willing to reside in a smaller place, and forgo a parking spot, pool, gym and other perks to live in the popular neighborhood at a less expensive rate.
The design of the Continental emphasizes that a simple high quality material pallet can be effective in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. In addition to long term material longevity the building’s green rating exceeds California’s requirement by over 15%. The entire core energy usage is powered by high efficiency solar panels and all units feature high efficiency appliances and large sliding doors and private patios for natural ventilation.
