The Cannery Lofts is a 22-unit development of mixed-use loft units located within the historic Cannery Village district of Newport Beach. Each unit provides ground level commercial space below two levels of residential use.

On-site parking is provided in open-air automobile courts, located between the commercial units. The auto courts allow for through-site pedestrian access while minimizing parking on the primary street frontage.  The units are designed to provide individual privacy and utilize passive ventilation techniques. The nearby Rhine Channel waterway is protected by the Cannery Lofts on-site, self-contained runoff management.

Cannery Lofts were conceived to offer live/work buildings for independent professionals and to enhance the community by creating an active, pedestrian-oriented commercial and residential enclave within Cannery Village.  This innovative design demonstrates that new housing can fit comfortably within established neighborhoods.
