Urth Caffe
(Orange, CA)

The Urth Caffe, located at 100 W. Chapman Avenue, will be its largest location. Currently a historic two story commercial building, it was originally built in approximately 1888 as a one story building before it underwent major reconstruction when it was expanded and an additional floor added in 1905. The commercial structure is located in the City of Orange’s Historic District and is in close proximity to Chapman College, City Hall and Orange’s Train Depot.

Spectra Company is restoring the entire building including reconstructing the original exterior façade and incorporating a structural retrofit, new electrical, mechanical and plumbing building systems and new roof.
