A pair of seven-story apartment buildings are now under construction at side-by-side properties in Koreatown.

The first of the two developments, located at 3951 Ingraham Street, consists of a six-story building featuring 14 apartments above a partially subterranean parking garage.  City records indicate that architect Chuang Choi designed the podium-type building, which is now fully framed.

The second project, located at 3945 Ingraham Street, will also be a six-story building with 14 apartments and a parking structure.  The building, which has not yet progressed above ground level, is designed by Leslie Thomas Lippich.

Both serve as a prelude to a large mixed-use development from Jamison Services, Inc., which recently started work nearby at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Wilton Avenue.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
