Criterion Promenade

Criterion Promenade offers unique and renovated apartments housed within a historic façade.

Our apartment homes have a modern, clean look that will make you feel right at home in within the gorgeous historical architecture. This Santa Monica, CA, community is made up of new residences of superior quality paired with classic design. Located on the corner of Third and Arizona Street, the property is just two blocks from Santa Monica Beach where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful California weather. Criterion Promenade overlooks the world-famous Third Street Promenade where there is a variety of fun things to do and see, as well as upscale shopping. Just steps away from your front door, you’ll find Santa Monica’s Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Plus, first-class gourmet dining, as well as both cultural and entertainment opportunities that aren’t found anywhere else. Feeling playful? The Pacific Park is just quick jaunt down the street for all your fun-loving adventures. Time for work? We’re close to Google, Santa Monica College, and of course all the retail stores. Commuting from the Criterion will be a breeze as our location on Third allows for easy access to the 10 and 405 freeways. 

We offer three different studio apartment layouts and three different one-bedroom floor plans to choose from to suit your lifestyle. You’ll love that you can live with your furry best friends! We welcome up to two pets to live with you in your new apartment home. Amenities abound with stylish plank flooring, ocean views, Third Street Promenade views, stylish Quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances. You’ll appreciate our unique architectural window design that enhance select units.
