A year-and-a-half after breaking ground on the border between Pico-Union and Koreatown, wood framing is rising for a mixed-use apartment complex from real estate development firm LiveWorkCreate.
The project, which replaced a commercial building and single-family home at the southeast corner of Olympic Boulevard and Kenmore Avenue, will consist of a seven-story building featuring 126 apartments atop ground-floor retail and a parking garage.
EWAI is designing the apartment complex, which is depicted in a rendering as a contemporary podium-type building with upper floors wrapping a central amenity deck.
At the time the project secured construction financing in April 2020, completion of the building was anticipated in 2022.
The project site was previously slated for the construction of a hotel under a prior ownership group, sold the property in late 2018 for roughly $15 million.
