Paso Robles Honors Estrella Associates

December 31, 2009

The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce selected Estrella Associates Inc. for the 2009 Beautification of the Year Award.
The company is being honored for the River Oaks Center at 2727 Buena Vista Drive. 

It is the first commercial building in San Luis Obispo County to receive a gold precertification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Core and Shell green building rating system. 

Estrella Associates collaborated with Leonard Grant Architecture to design the center. It will consist of two buildings with a combined total of 50,000 square feet of floor space. 

Potential uses include a gourmet grocery store, office/commercial space and other neighborhood services. The center has completed its first phase and is now procuring tenants. 

The award will be presented at the chamber’s annual dinner Jan. 16 at the Paso Robles Inn Grand Ballroom. For more information on the event, see
