Success Story: 700 N. MAIN STREET, SANTA ANA, CA


A successful Southern California Developer needed to turn a 100 year old bank building with a cement vault into a space suitable for two retail tenants who were waiting in the wings, and create a third space fit for future development. Because of the retail clients’ timeline, structural integrity problems due to age, and strict city code requirements and approvals, we had our work cut out for us.


M.A. Nourse transformed an aging structure into a turn-key warm shell fit for retail tenants. To accommodate new uses, the design-build contract included architectural modifications, new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, and redesigned site work to comply with ADA parking standards. Tenants were able to move in on schedule.

“I knew we had hired the right firm by the way M.A. Nourse took ownership of the project even before we had signed the contract; they set up meetings with consultants and engineers, obtained city approvals, and gave us a number of ideas to add value and improve the efficiency of the mixed use concept and design. This effort, coupled with a hands on management style, meant that we saved money while completing the project in the timeframe required by the retail tenants.”
