AO Completes Design of Milpitas Mixed-Use Project

Architecture firm AO has completed the design of Anton Aspire and Ascend, a 583-unit mixed-use property in Milpitas, CA. Adjacent to the new BART/VTA station, the two buildings feature 5,400 square feet of ground floor retail space and a 2.1-acre public park with custom art installations.

“This has been such a fulfilling project to work on with our partners at Anton DevCo; this new endeavor symbolizes the future of transit-oriented design in a key employment and entertainment hub,” said AO Managing Partner Ed Cadavona.

Architecturally, cues were taken from the BART station itself, including extensive use of metal paneling and a futuristic outlook. The sweeping curves of the facades form a prominent entry into the transit area and the project’s color palette is monochromatic with metal panel cladding systems, metal awnings and fiber cement panels. 

Residences and retail space are now leasing at Anton Aspire and Ascend located at 1828 South Milpitas Blvd.
