Adaptive Reuse of Riverside’s Stalder Building Reaches Completion

Architecture firm AO provided design for Regional Properties Inc.’s The Mark, a mixed-use seven-story residential and retail building in Riverside’s historic core. The design preserves the unified 1926 façade of the former Stalder Building, transforming it into 20,000 square feet of retail space hosting street-level boutiques and restaurants, integrated with a modern seven-story podium housing 165 apartments.   

Named for accomplished local developer Mark Rubin, the now-completed project is the last of his many contributions to the city. He was extensively involved in design and development of The Mark until his passing in 2021.   

“The Mark was the vision of my late father, Mark Rubin, who believed this was the best piece of property in Riverside,” said Michelle Rubin, president of Regional Properties, Inc. “He sought to restore the history of the building and blend it with a modern downtown community and having worked with AO in the past, he knew their design expertise would align with the vision.”
