The Mark: A seven-story mixed-use community coming to Downtown Riverside

By: Sharjeel Sohaib


Sep 9, 2022


A regional property of a 7-story building known as Mark is being built up in Riverside, California. The facility will serve as a mixed-use community and support the multifamily properties initiative in California.  

Key Takeaways:

  • The historical building of three structures will now be a component of a seven-story podium project with mixed-use elements. 
  • Two restaurants, a cafΓ©, and boutique stores will be housed in the historic facade’s original storefronts, which will be restored to their former beauty.

The Mark in Riverside

The Mark at Mission Inn Avenue and Market Street in Riverside’s downtown historic area is near its completion of construction. The site, which once housed Riverside’s first fire station, a livery stable, and an auto dealership, is undergoing renovation and will soon be reincarnated as a mixed-use community with seven stories that respect the three original buildings. 

Its iconic facade will be restored, and its original storefronts will still house two restaurants, a cafe, and boutique shops that will liven up the downtown neighborhood. This is done to preserve the historical elements that made this area memorable.

Project Partners

Following are the partners of this project:

  • Landscape: Architerra Design Group
  • Civil: Rick Engineering
  • Mechanical: LDI Mechanical, Inc.
  • Electrical: OMB Electrical Engineers, Inc.
  • Plumbing: Design West Engineering

Importance of regional properties and multifamily homes in Riverside

The most valuable property is a multifamily home or a regional property.

Multifamily homes are homes with more than one unit of housing. These can be apartments, condominiums, or houses. Regional properties are also known as commercial properties. They are large buildings for offices, shops, warehouses, or hotels.

These two properties are so important because they have a higher value than single-family homes. This means they can generate more income than any other real estate investment.

Other Mixed-Use Projects 

Multifamily Properties in Inland Empire

In august 2022 Startempire wire also reported that three multifamily properties in the Inland Empire totaling 286 units are up for refinancing for $27 million by the Northmarq San Diego regional office. 

The Hoffman Company Facilitates the Sale of a 482-unit Apartment Project in Riverside.

We also reported that a brokerage firm, The Hoffman Company, completed the sale of a 482-unit apartment complex on about 18 acres that is a part of the larger 35-acre “The Exchange” mixed-use development. 

Wrap Up!

Several significant mixed-use developments are in the working process in Riverside, with a couple already completed. The mark is also one of the core developments in Riverside. It will serve as a mixed-use project. While these developments can be exciting and beneficial, they also represent a transition towards a denser, more urban Riverside. In other words, it’s time to think differently about this city if you want to succeed in the coming years. But the good news is that Riverside already has many assets; its best days can still lie ahead.
