A residential project takes a step forward at 1050 La Cinega Boulevard in Carthay, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the development of a high-rise tower featuring over 290 apartments, retail space, and onsite parking.
Carmel Partners is the project developer. The project is designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz.
The project was announced in April 2022, and will rise from a vacant site. Plans call for the construction of a 28-story building featuring 290 studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments above approximately 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail. Parking for 426 vehicles will be located in a podium garage and below-grade levels.
Carmel is seeking entitlements using Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a larger development than typically allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, 29 of the new homes – or 10 percent of the project total – will be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.
The tower will rise 334 feet in height. Plans show an exterior of aluminum and glass on its upper floors, with painted plaster masking above grade parking levels. The building’s podium deck and roof level will be used to provide more than 54,000 square feet of open space for use by residents.
Pending approval by the City of Los Angeles, the tower will be built over an approximately three-year-period commencing as early as January 2023 and concluding by August 2025.
The project site is located south of the Los Angeles-Beverly Hills border.
