Two-and-a-half years after breaking ground in Koreatown, Los Angeles-based developer CityView is putting the finishing touches on the Pearl on Wilshire.

The seven-story building, which occupies a half city block at 3670 Wilshire Boulevard, will feature 346 apartments and 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space when it opens later this year. 

Santa Monica-based VTBS Architects designed the podium-type structure, which incorporates a swimming pool and a rooftop amenity deck.

Completion of the Pearl is set to occur later this year.

Under previous ownership, the property had been considered for one or more high-rise apartment towers.  Plans for a public park on the site were also considered, but ultimately went unrealized.

Six-Story Apartment Building to Rise on Westlake Parking Lot

Another project through the Transit Oriented Communities program.

A 9,300-square-foot surface parking lot in Westlake is slated for development, according to plans filed last week with the City of Los Angeles.

The property, located at 366 S. Loma Drive, could see the construction of a six-story building featuring 39 apartments - including affordable units - above a partially subterranean parking garage.
