A rendering has emerged for 700 Manhattan, an upcoming residential-retail complex from Jamison Services Inc.

Located one block south of Metro's Wilshire/Western Station, the project would consist of a seven-story building containing 160 residential units above 10,300 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  Plans also call for approximately 17,000 square feet of amenities, including multiple lounge areas, a pool deck, a dog run and outdoor screening areas.

The property is located approximately three blocks west of Wilton Place, where Jamison is planning a similar seven-story development.
