A new apartment tower is taking shape and form at its construction site at 5411 Wilshire Boulevard in the Mid-Wilshire area, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the construction of a 42-story apartment tower. The project replaces a 1930s retail building on the Miracle Mile.

Walter N. Marks, Inc is the project developer. Keating Architecture is responsible for the designs.

Named Mirabel, the residential project takes a step forward after three years. The high-rise apartment tower will bring 348 residential units. The units are designed as a mix of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Parking for 309 vehicles will also be provided on the site.

The project’s entitlement application relies on density bonus incentives to more floor area than otherwise allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, plans call for 29 apartments will be set aside for rent as very low-income affordable housing. The current iteration of the proposed tower represents a slight reduction in density from the original proposal for Mirabel, which had called for 371 apartments. The reduction in housing is the result of a switch from the incentives affordable by the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines to the state density bonus.

Renderings reveal a façade designed in glass exterior. The building will rise to a height of 530 feet. The tower would be set back from the podium edges to reduce the massing from the street level. Architectural features would include material changes, horizontal design elements, and Art Deco-inspired canopied entryways.

The initial study mentions a 36-month construction period for the tower, with completion expected in 2027. At the time the project was announced in 2019, it was expected that construction would be completed by 2023.

  4. What, no picture of the “progress”? Prove it… LOL

  5. This apartment building project has been in the ‘works’ for a rather lengthy period of time. Probably due to a series of ongoing negotiations with the city planning commission. It’s not a bad looking building but the size and scope of the project most likely requireds a careful design review before final approvals are granted.
