Montrose Projects

Montrose Campus (PDC/Citibank)


This project will complete the process of adapting the existing Professional Development Center (PDC) building for educational use, as well as adapting and integrating the recently acquired commercial property that is located on the adjacent parcel in Glendale’s historic Montrose Town Center. Signage will also be upgraded to make an instant visual connection with the architectural styles of the Verdugo and Garfield Campuses, while maintaining the historic charm of Montrose Town Center.
