Hometown Team

With strong local roots and a decades-long history of involvement in Santa Monica, David Paul and Jeff Worthe joined with architect Frank Gehry to create a project intended to reflect the character of what Santa Monica is today and create an enduring legacy for the future.

“We’ve owned the majority of this property for decades and have been searching for just the right project for this very special site and for Santa Monica. We are excited about the potential to create a new cultural anchor for residents and visitors with a Gehry-designed building and museum campus.”
