"A Gehry-designed  project in his hometown of Santa Monica, CA"

Forty years into his career, celebrated architect Frank Gehry has never designed a project in his hometown of Santa Monica, CA.

That would change under a proposal by a local development team headed by M. David Paul Associates and Worthe Real Estate Group, which has unveiled a proposal to build a 125-room hotel and residential property, a museum and 30,000 square feet of retail in downtown Santa Monica.

The project by architect Frank Gehry would be the first developed by the celebrated building designer in the town long associated with his practice: "After 25 years, I am excited to finally design a project in my hometown of 40 years," he said on a web site presenting the project to the public.
