South Village Team

Development

The Development Team for South Village is a partnership between Arteco Partners and Village Partners. Collectively, this team is known as South Village Partners.

Building Architecture

The South Village architecture team is made up of four world-class architecture teams designing individual buildings. Each architecture team brings their own unique perspective to the project, but all teams are united by shared project values.

Public Realm

Multiple interdisciplinary design teams are collaborating on the public realm design of South Village, including the Urban Design team from Moule Polyzoides, the Placemaking team from Torti Gallas, and the Civil Engineering team from Fuscoe.

Arteco Partners is a community-minded builder and innovative operator of new and adaptive-reuse and mixed-use projects. Based in downtown Pomona and led by Claremont-native and long-time Claremont residents Jerry and Ed Tessier, Arteco’s development approach and management expertise thrives in pedestrian scale, mixed-use, historic and cultural environments. Arteco has developed historic, cultural, academic, and arts-themed projects in nine Southern California cities, most often working in public-private partnerships with municipal agencies and collaborations with non-profits and community organizations. Arteco has renovated and re-positioned over 500,000 square feet of historic buildings, dozens of which have historic designation and often were threatened with demolition, including in Claremont the Claremont Packing House and Padua Hills Theater.     

Arteco also operates multiple entertainment and special events locations that often feature extensive community-based non-profit programming, such as the 2,000 person capacity Pomona Fox Theater, Vail Headquarters, and Riverside Game Lab. After developing and operating multiple restaurants, Arteco started a Culinary Division in 2017 which is building and operating multiple food halls, including Inland Empire’s first food hall, the Riverside Food Lab.    The Tessier family donates over 40,000 square feet to arts and educational nonprofits, and have co-founded, built and help operate non-profit community service providers such as  the community and collegiate art exhibition space, the Progress Galleries, and the 750-student charter School of Arts & Enterprise, and the Downtown Pomona Owner’s Association Business Improvement District. Arteco has collaborated amongst others with the Claremont Museum of Art, American Museum of Ceramic Art, Cal Poly Pomona, Western University of Health Sciences, Cal State Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Fair, the DA Center for the Arts.
