Beautiful Napa’s Riverfront Complex
Conco’s participation in a $72 million project, The Riverfront, in downtown Napa, CA. is another prime example of our vast portfolio and range of concrete services. The Venetian-style building is a mixed-use development of 50 residential condos, 30,000 sq. ft. of office space, and 40,000 sq. ft. of retail.
The 1.3 acre-property with Napa River frontage was completed in 2009 and includes a 2-levels subterranean parking structure capable of accommodating 229 vehicles. Channel Properties is the owner of the project, architect was Johnson Lyman Architects and the general contractor was Ledcor Builders, Inc.
Napa resident and president of Channel Properties, Mike DeSimoni, Sr., was raised in Europe and wanted the property to “reflect not only the look but the land-use philosophy, now known in the U.S. as new urbanism.” The desire was to create an area where people could live, work, and shop in the downtown area.
One of the biggest challenges to the project was to address the underground parking structure, which would be situated below the water table. Structural engineering firms lead by Peoples Associates designed a solution to construct “a pumping station to reduce the hydrostatic pressure and not require a foundation that resists uplift forces due to buoyancy.” The creative solution saved the project a considerable amount of money.
The Riverfront retail area has become a mecca for foodies and high-end restaurants. Morimoto Napa Restaurant and Lounge is a 7,500 sq. ft. sushi bar owned by celebrity chef, Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef America fame. The Fish Story, a Lark Creek Restaurant Group, is a sustainable seafood restaurant. Another well-known Food Network star, Tyler Florence, operates a 2,500 sq. ft. rotisserie style eatery. Also Napa’s visitor information center is now located in the complex.
