Located in Marina del Rey, Calif., Legacy Partners’ under-construction community Neptune Marina will feature 526 units and a new marina. Tim Mustard, AIA, principal of TCA Architects, says the development’s clean, linear design will incorporate nautical expressions through the use of textures, stone accents and a neutral palette combined with splashes of color. The inclusion of posts and beams with expansive windows, open floor plans and improved waterfront access creates a true indoor/outdoor experience associated with living beside the marina. ??“The architectural goal for Neptune Marina is to adopt the site’s historical design elements and infuse them with a modern balance in order to resonate with the next generation of marina residents and boaters,” says Mustard. ?Neptune Marina has an estimated completion date of 2018. tcaarchitects.com/neptune-marina/
