Designed for Caruso Affiliated, Excelsior is the mixed-use condominium component of the Americana at Brand Shopping Center in Glendale. To create this six-story building with ground-floor retail, recreational amenities on the second level, and 100 luxury condominium units above, TSM worked with the City of Glendale on an alternative means and methods approach to the building code to enable the use of more cost-effective Type III construction. The result is a unique living situation within an exciting retail environment.
