What once was a car wash and auto detail shop along El Camino Real off Shoreline Boulevard in the Silicon Valley is now turning into a luxury condominium community developed by Regis Homes Bay Area LLC. 1101 West, the new condominium building located at 1101 West El Camino Real in downtown Mountain View, is nearing completion and will hit the luxury property market this summer. The forthcoming 75,700-square-feet development is poised to bring 52 condominium units comprising of 6 studios, 18 one-bedroom, 17 two-bedroom, and 11 three-bedroom residences featuring spacious floor plans, refined finishes and sustainable design elements. Community amenities include an elegant lobby, landscaped courtyard with barbecues and fire pit, a bike pavilion with secure bike storage and workshop, a pet-friendly area and electrical vehicle charging stations available for every homeowner.
The structure includes a full story of below grade parking supported by continuous and spread footings with a concrete podium slab at grade creating a landscaped patio for the residents, and supporting four stories of traditional wood framing. The structure is set back from the street to promote foot and bike traffic. There is also a new bus stop in front of the building. With a Walk Score of 79 out of 100 in the Miramonte-Springer neighborhood in Mountain View, 1101 West’s location is very walkable so most errands can be accomplished on foot. Nearby parks include McKelvey Park, Eagle Park and Pioneer Park.
Regis Homes Bay Area with Van Tilburg, Banvard & Soderbergh (VTBS Architects), and Nishkian Monks of Bozeman worked together on this transit-oriented, urban-infill, luxury condominium building project to help with the Grand Boulevard Initiative, a collaboration of more than 30 different San Francisco Bay Area cities, agencies and other organizations working together to attract new development, retail, transit, employment, services and housing along the El Camino Real corridor which is one of the Bay Area’s major thoroughfares.

Located in the Crow’s Nest development at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort in Tahoe, California this 5,600-square-foot, three-story, unique ski-in/ski-out chalet is truly a one-of-a-kind custom home. Nishkian Monks PLLC participated in the project as the structural engineer of record, working directly with San Francisco-based architectural firm Baldauf Catton Von Eckartsberg/BCV Architects, and general contractor Mt. Lincoln Construction of Truckee, California. Situated in the Sierra Nevada mountain range where maximum expected design snow depth is 16 feet – equating to 380 pounds per sq.ft. of snow weight, construction of this luxury residential building posed challenges due to the site and program constraints. Additionally, the site is located at one of Sugar Bowl’s highest reaches – higher than many of the resort’s ski lifts, and situated in a region of high seismicity. BCV Architects challenged Nishkian Monks with designing a multi-folded, double sloping plane roof with oversized overhangs out of wood framing that could support the extreme roof snow loads. Through numerous design iterations and collaboration with BCV, Nishkian Monks successfully achieved a structural design for BCV’s striking exposed wood purlin roof. The roof purlins were arranged in such a fashion so as to emanate from the center of the chalet when viewing the house from any side.
