Less than one mile north of LAX, developer Decron Properties is pushing towards the finish line on a $105 million mixed-use development. Playa Del Oro West, consisting of 260 luxury apartments and 5,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space, is topped out at 7270 Manchester Avenue, replacing a formerly vacant lot one block west of Lincoln Boulevard. Designed by Van Tilburg, Banyard & Soderbergh (Picasso Brentwood, 3670 Wilshire), the seven-story structure will be clad in exterior materials including cement plaster and stone veneer. The building will include a wide range of residential amenities, including a rooftop sky lounge, lap pool, gym, game room, business center, dog park and a 515-car underground garage. The project is located in a highly walkable section of the Westchester neighborhood, with a variety of stores, restaurants and markets located nearby. Several of those establishments occupy the ground floor of Playa Del Oro's first phase, a 405-unit complex which Decron Properties opened in 2009. Promotional materials state that the second and final phase will open this Fall.
