COVINA BOWL HISTORIC SITE

Trusted by agencies, builders and developers for the collaborative creation of projects. 
This is WHA.

Originally built in 1955, Covina Bowl was a source of entertainment offering 50 lanes total for the Covina community to enjoy. Over time, the facility was abandoned for seven years and was considered the most endangered building in Los Angeles. Given its deep significance for the city and history, developers saw it as an attractive site to build housing.

Collaborating with Trumark Homes, WHA designed a collection of townhomes and flats inspired by the namesake of the land it’s built on. Plug and play floorplans align with Trumark’s “truflex” options for buyers to customize their layout to work with the compact footprint. A priority was to preserve the features of the original Googie style architecture, which will be showcased through the restoration of the iconic sign, as well as a portion of the Covina Bowl Building, a former bowling alley, to create 12,000 SF of commercial/retail/office uses. Historical nods throughout the site include street names like

“Pin Lane” and “Strike Drive”, and a lawn bowling amenity as tribute.

The residences are currently for sale with an expected completion date in the coming months.
