Garden Grove

New look for a Main St. bldg?

THE PROPOSED new facade for the Main Street Pavilion building at Main and Acacia in Garden Grove.

A new look and new uses could be coming to one of downtown’s most prominent buildings. On Thursday, Oct. 15 the Garden Grove Planning Commission will consider a new façade at what’s now known as the Main Street Pavilion at 12865 Main St. (at Acacia Parkway).

What’s proposed by owner/applicant Elizabeth Dang is to redo the façade of the two-story, 18,200-square foot building. At the same time, she plans to convert some of the existing office spaces to other allowed uses, such as a juice bar/café on the ground floor and a residential apartment unit on the second floor.

The redesign of the exterior is described as “stylistic finishes being used to freshen the building.”  A second floor balcony will be added and windows on the upper floor would be replaced with “Juliet”-style balconies with black iron railings. The building will be re-stuccoed and painted a light, off-white color.

Because it’s located in the Historical Main Street Zone,” design criteria adopted in 1978 calls for a Spanish style, wood-framed stucco building fronts and tile roofs.

The Downtown Commission has approved the plans for a new façade.

The planners will meet in teleconference at 7 p.m.
