Watsonville downtown revitalization takes shape By DONNA JONES SENTINEL STAFF WRITER WATSONVILLE — For 15 years, since ... January 5, 2005

Architect Bob Corbett, whose Watsonville architectural firm is designing all three projects, called the Civic Center the impetus for much of the planned construction.The four-story building will encompass the entire 200 block of Main Street, housing courts, a library and city administration when complete in 2007.The adjacent six-story garage will provide more than 450 parking spaces.In Santa Cruz, which also saw much of its downtown ravaged by the quake, a movie theater complex provided an anchor for a bustling entertainment and shopping district, Corbett said.But unlike Santa Cruz, Watsonville's downtown isn't so much of a destination, he said, so city leaders had to find other ways to draw people.These developments help the city achieve "the critical mass you need to complete the core of the downtown," Corbett said."The city has been working very hard trying to attract businesses, housing, industrial and education to the downtown," he said.WATSONVILLE , Architect Bob Corbett grinned as he swung his arm to encompass Stoesser Alley."They'll be restaurants, everything," Corbett said, "getting people downtown not just during the work day but on a 24-hour basis."The 300 block of Main Street sustained heavy damage during the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.Most of the buildings left standing were demolished.While some might dwell on the tragedy of losing historic structures, Corbett sees a silver lining.The older buildings , long, narrow structures that pulled in natural light only from Main Street storefronts and back alley windows , had outlived their usefulness and could no longer attract tenants with more modern needs, he said."(The quake) forced modernization, redevelopment and the intensification of use," Corbett said.Corbett is designing two buildings planned for the neighborhood and has put together the blueprint for remodeling and expanding a third.He's designed existing structures on the 300 block of Main Street, too.And when it comes time to develop the final empty lot, a green lawn surrounded by a battered chain link fence directly across from the City Plaza, he'll most likely get that job. The city hired Corbett to head up the planning for the alley facelift, as well, a project that will tie together buildings facing both Rodriguez and Main streets. He downplays his own role in the projects, praising instead building owners who are taking the financial risk to develop the block and sharing credit with Phil Baldwin, the associate architect who has worked for him for 15 years."It was a case of being in the right place at the right time," Corbett said, of landing the work."It's been a thrill."Still, the job presents the challenge of making the new buildings fit into the traditional downtown without faking history, Corbett said.He kept that in mind, he said, while designing the Spanish-style building at 319 Main St., which features antique tiles on the roof and custom designed ironwork on balconies and overhangs.Since he's designed most of the buildings on the block, he's tried to make them harmonious while retaining a distinctive look for each.Corbett, 56, came to Santa Cruz County in the 1970s, and worked for another architectural firm before launching his own practice in Watsonville in 1982.A man of average build, his thick brown hair shows just a few gray strands. He concentrates on commercial and industrial business and has designed projects for salad producer Fresh Express in Salinas, headset maker Plantronics in Santa Cruz and Fox Racing Shox in Watsonville. But Corbett's professional legacy may be his work downtown.He talks of how the buildings will look in 50, 100 years.The idea was to create classical rather than trendy buildings, modern, efficient and constructed with quality materials, he said. "These buildings are going to be here for a long time," Corbett said.
