At Arteco Partners, we value sustainability, creativity, and education. We encourage and support arts-friendly businesses in our communities, we encourage public art initiatives, and we make our own businesses as eco-friendly and sustainable as they can be by switching to solar power and using only green products.
We are proud of our “community-focused” projects and partnerships with educational and arts non-profit organizations, such as The School of Arts and Enterprise, VaRRA, Cal Poly, Pomona, Western University of Health Sciences, the dA Center of the Arts, the Progress Gallery, and the Latino Art Museum.
Art is one of the most defining aspects of Arteco Partners, which is why we try to incorporate art into all of our buildings - whether with public artwork, by encouraging more arts-friendly businesses to open in one of our communities, or by offering Live/Work artist lofts in Downtown Pomona, Ontario and Claremont. We also hold art walks and art-related community events at each of our properties.
At Arteco, we feel that sustainability is one of the most important aspects of any company. That's why Arteco Partners and the Fox Theater will soon operate fully off of solar power. We use green products in all of our properties and encourage the use of eco-friendly and green products by all of our tenants and businesses.

VaRRA (Vail Ranch Restoration Association) began with a small group of people who wanted to save the remaining land and buildings of the historic Vail Ranch in Temecula.
