Alliance Realty Partners, a national developer of multifamily residential complexes, is in the midst of construction for Broadstone Fairfax, a mixed-use building in Mid City Los Angeles.

The five-story building, now rising at the intersection of Fairfax Avenue and San Vincente Boulevard, will consist of 149 residential units and nearly 4,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

According to the website of the Cuningham Group, design architect for the project, the low-rise complex will employ renewable energy and reduce water use through photovoltaic panels, green roofs, low-flow plumbings and a greywater system.  Broadstone is also designed with a mixture of townhomes and traditional apartments, supplemented by communal spaces including an outdoor pool and roof decks.

Alliance is developing the building in conjunction with an expansion of Shalhevet High School, an adjacent private instutution which serves the Othodox Jewish community.
