Foster City, California
Marlin Cove is the redevelopment of an existing strip retail center into a mixed-use retail and residential project. BCV designed the new retail portion of the center, incorporating an existing grocery store, for a total of 66,500 SF.
The redesign involved creating a new entrance for the grocery store, as well as the creation of a drug store, 8 in-line retail shops, a restaurant, second-level professional office space, and a residential leasing office. Organized as a bar with restaurant and drugstore anchoring the ends, a civic-scaled trellis runs alongside the in-line retail shops, forming a central plaza and colonnade, and creating a linear connection across the site, linking retail and residential to the Foster City lagoon waterfront.
