In Echo Park, real estate investment firm MWest Holdings continues to make progress on a mixed-use development.  


Earth movers are currently excavating the underground parking levels for the project, which will rise at the northwest corner of Echo Park Avenue and Grafton Street.  Plans call for a three-story edifice that will contain 35 studio apartments, 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and parking for 40 vehicles.

The 21,000-square-foot development is being designed by KFA Architecture.  A rendering depicts a contemporary low-rise structure clad with brick and accented with wood.

MWest cleared the development site - previously improved with an office building - in late 2018.

The Sherman Oaks-based developer owns a number of historic properties throughout the Los Angeles area, in addition to assets in New York.
