(November 12, 2012 – CARLSBAD, CA) – Architect, Builder, and Developer Jonathan Segal, FAIA and his team built a multifamily award-winning project called “The Charmer” in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood. The Charmer is a pedestrian-friendly, modern designed courtyard apartment complex with 19 residential units and five thousand square feet of commercial space. All parking is at grade, and while some spaces are covered to comply with local requirements, most residents park in the landscaped courtyard which was paved with Soil Retention’s Drivable Grass®. “The Charmer” won the 2012 residential architect Project of the Year!
