Historic Restoration

2023 Jewel Award winner for Historic Restoration

La Jolla, CA

The Russell Forester Park Prospect Building project was the recipient of the 2023 Jewel Award for historic restoration.

Benton & Benton Architects partnered with the Park Prospect HOA and West Coast General Building Contractors on this incredible project. The collaboration, support, trust, and patience that was demonstrated by not only the restoration team but every resident of the building that lived through the exhaustive project, was nothing short of extraordinary.

The successful restoration of The Park Prospect will benefit the condo owners and the La Jolla community for decades to come and has authentically restored Russell Foresters original architectural intent. The striking International Modernist style building is located at 800 Prospect St, a stone’s throw from the water, La Jolla village, and arguably some of the areas most beautiful historic buildings.
