Two years after breaking ground at 5100 Wilshire Boulevard, vertical construction is now complete for the Mansfield, a mixed-use development from the Korda Group.

Located on a 1.45-acre site just east of La Brea Avenue, the seven-story building will feature 138 apartments above 13,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 299-car parking garage.  Plans also call for amenities such as a swimming pool and a fitness center.

A leasing brochure indicates that the Automobile Club of Southern California has already leased a portion of the building's ground floor.
