Chattel developed a project that brought back the modern elegance of the arched, reinforced concrete bridge.  Today, this Irving Gill designed structure serves as Torrance's eastern gateway and a symbol of civic identity.

Chattel worked with structural engineer Krakower & Associates, concrete specialist Preservation Arts, and City of Torrance, Department of Public Works to remove paint, graffiti, and dense vines, patch damaged concrete, reconstruct wood guardrails, apply clear anti-graffiti coating, and design a new lighting scheme that accentuates the distinctive arches.  Chattel also consulted with the Torrance Historical Society and City Council to come up with the official name, Pacific Electric Railway - El Prado Bridge.  The project received a Los Angeles Conservancy Preservation Award in 2015.
