Bolsa Row, a planned mixed-use development from KTGY Architecture + Planning, has been unveiled for Westminster, Calif. The project will act as a gateway to the largest Vietnamese community in the U.S., “Little Saigon.”

The community will be located on six acres of land and include a five-story 150-room hotel, a five-story 201-unit apartment complex, and 60,000 sf of ground floor retail, restaurant space, and an event facility. The apartment complex will comprise a mixture of studio, one-, and two-bedroom units. A “Festival Street,” a pedestrian-friendly retail promenade, will connect the different components of the project.

The Festival Street can host farmers markets, holiday celebrations and private parties. It can be closed to traffic for these events without restricting the circulation of the site. When it is open, the street will provide parking for the development’s retail component.

A landscaped “Celebration Bridge” will provide seating areas and connect the event hall to the hotel’s second-story roof garden. The bridge enhances pedestrian circulation and provides additional outdoor event space with access to the indoor reception halls.
