Had a quick visit with the well-heeled Montana’s of Pasadena the other day. They were in the Christmas Spirit, if just a bit reserved, what with the 24/7 security around the building.
However, each person I’ve met on the security detail has been professional, courteous and friendly.
Upon seeing their display I could only think: surprised to see it. Reserved & elegant. Moneyed, material but ultimately respectful of the importance of the spiritual.
The Montana Residences is a still new luxury condo complex. Per their website:
The basic ambition of its Creator was to construct condos so much better than anything else in Pasadena that prospective owners who liked the project could not find anything else that was comparable. It was named the "Montana" because it desired to become as highly regarded as NYC/Manhattan’s "Dakota."
Fine. However for most of us local Joe’s & Jose’s who just want a great cup of Joe, The Montana’s main claim to fame is the recent opening on its street level of the newest Euro Pane Bakery & Cafe. In between Pasadena CitiHall to its north and Paseo Colorado on the south.
345 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena CA 91101
What thoughts come to you from the Christmas display above?
