The three-story edifice, which replaced a strip mall, will include 50 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above roughly 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and two levels of subterranean parking. LaTerra will also be required to set aside four of the apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing, under conditions of approval imposed by the City of Santa Monica.
Designed by Tighe Architecture, the wood-frame structure will eventually be wrapped in perforated metal panels on its upper floors, with flourishes of orange and green used to color its inset balconies. Floor-to-ceiling glass is planned at ground-level, set back slightly from the street.
According to a landing page on the LaTerra Development website, the mixed-use development will also include a fitness center, multiple courtyards, a clubhouse, and a 5,000-square-foot rooftop amenity deck.
The Santa Monica and Yale development is rising directly across the street from a currently empty lot slated for the construction of a similar 46-unit apartment complex.
