Award Winning History
Cooper Molero Adobe
In partnership with Washington DC-based National Trust for Historic Preservation, this is the re-imagining of historic commercial buildings at the Cooper-Molera Adobe historic site in the heart of downtown Monterey. It is located next door to Foothill’s Uptown Monterey Trader Joe’s Center. The Trust and Foothill are operating the Cooper-Molera Adobe in a “shared-use” model – the Trust operates three of the buildings in an ongoing interpretive program, with Foothill having returned the remainder of the buildings to commercial uses. The restored barns serve as a wedding/corporate/cultural event center, overlooking the historic gardens, while Cella Restaurant & Bar operates out of the old Spear Warehouse, and Alta Bakery and cafe from just across the courtyard. Winner of the California Preservation Foundation 2019 award for Design Excellence.
Located on the Gilman corridor in northwest Berkeley, California, our Whole Foods anchored Gilman District project, the repurposing of obsolete and under-utilized commercial buildings into a 95,000 square foot neighborhood shopping district.

Completed in 2014, the Gilman District project was awarded by Berkeley Design Advocates its 2015 Excellence in Design Award.

El Dorado Hills Town Center
El Dorado Hills Town Center thrives as a central shopping and dining district for the western slope of El Dorado County. From 1997 to 2012, in as much a labor of love as anything else, Foothill collaborated with The Mansour Company in converting a 100-acre horse pasture into an 800,000 square foot downtown district. Once described by the Sacramento Bee as "hosting more events than Disneyland," Town Center has become the center of commerce, culture, and community in El Dorado Hills.
