lt platinum CENTER
Anaheim, Orange County, California
In the heart of the Platinum Triangle and next to the Angels Stadium, LT Platinum Center will function as a new urban hub for the region.
Our design concept for this multistory mixed-use program is to open the corner, inviting the city in to a multi-faceted outdoor pedestrian shopping and entertainment experience. A series of plazas which will stage various public community events interrupt the linearity of the main pedestrian paths. The programs of hotel, office and residential which sit on top of the commercial podium, are distributed in such a ways as to allow privacy, views, drop-off, and separation in the below ground parking.
The design also takes cues from the origin of the name of Anaheim, which meant home by the Santa Ana River in German, by letting a "river" of people and spaces appear to carve out the project's interior.
The project is only minutes away from Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center; it has immediate access to a regional transit center; and it lies at the intersection of four major Southern California freeways, the 5, the 22, the 91, and the 57.
