Atlanta-based developer Wood Partners is wrapping up construction for the 5550, a $100-million residential-retail complex near the Hollywood/Western subway station.

The project, named for its address at 5550 Hollywood Boulevard, consists of a six-story building featuring 280 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and 12,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  Plans also call for common amenties such as a swimming pool and a fitness center.

Urban Architecture Lab designed the development, which employs a facade of brick veneer and cement plaster.  The project was designed to incorporate the facade of two historic buildings along Hollywood Boulevard, which now serve as the bases for the apartment complex's amenity decks.
