The Raymond Renaissance Condos in Pasadena

One of the best locations for a condo building in my opinion. Why? Because it’s in the middle of everything: Memorial Park across the street, the Gold Line station a block away, the Armory Center for the Arts next door, a view of City Hall, a wine bar a few doors down, and being just a bit off the beaten path in bustling Old Pasadena.

Originally, The Raymond Renaissance was supposed to be completed in April of this year, but the rule of thumb in construction is to always expect a “few” months delay. It looks to be about 90% completed and should wrap up in July I hope.

The condo building is actually part brand-new construction and part adaptive-reuse of what used to be the Jensen Raymond Theatre. There are more in-depth details about the history if you’re interested on their website.

  1. Decayed elegance is the aesthetic. Something not too many architectural firms seem to be able to pull off. Is red brick supposed to blend into old Pasadena? It doesn’t look to be true in the photo of the Raymond Theater frontage.
