Concrete and rebar now protrude above ground level at 6677 Santa Monica Boulevard, as AvalonBay Communities proceeds with the construction of a mixed-use complex on the nearly six-acre property.

The project, which will feature multiple buildings up to seven stories in height, will feature 695 apartments, 25,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  Plans also call for a landscaped paseo cutting through the center of the property.

Koning Eizenberg is serving as the project's design architect, with direction from Togawa Smith Martin.  Renderings are currently unavailable.

Previous reports point to a completion date in 2018.

Apartments to Replace Single-Family Residence on Olympic

The proposed development makes use of the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines.

A single-family residence and a vacant lot located just west of Koreatown could make way for a multifamily residential development, according to plans filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed development, located at the northwest corner of Olympic Boulevard and 3rd Avenue, would consist of a six-story building featuring 51 rental apartments - including 11 units set aside for low-income families.
