Catellus Urban Development
Developer of the Year

University Heights Library Task ForceCatellus Urban Development company administered the successful rehabilitation of the Santa Fe Depot baggage building. The focus of the project was the sensitive restoration of the exterior to its 1914 appearance. Work included window and door repair, restoration of existing features, and replication of missing doors, hardware, copper gutters and downspouts. Long missing cast-bronze light sconces and pendant globes were custom fabricated to match those in historic photos. Hazardous materials were removed and the building was seismically retrofitted. Finally, it was painted in its historic yellow and green Santa Fe Railroad colors. This rehabilitation was conducted as part of a larger development, which, upon completion, will house the downtown location of the Museum of Contemporary Arts. While the future new construction may be controversial, no one can argue with the quality of the baggage building restoration.
