The bustling Westlake neighborhood will soon get an influx of new residential units, per a recent filing with City Planning. Check it out:
1419 W. 7th St.; Westlake
The project includes 87 multi-family residential units and approx. 900 sq. ft. of commercial floor area in the construction of a new seven-story mixed-use residential building. The 87 residential units will include 82 market rate units and 5 units reserved for very low income households....up to 135 parking spaces (2 retail spaces, 133 residential spaces) on two levels...an approximately 1,003 sq. ft. gym, 1,200 sq. ft. of recreation room, and 1,962 sq. ft. of recreation deck on the third level.
The party behind this project appears to be Canfield Development. The locally based developer has built a short roster of low rise apartments in some of the more upscale neighborhoods of the city. This time they picked a location on the far opposite end of the gentrification spectrum, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Westlake has incredible food, great pedestrian activity, a Red/Purple line subway station, and perhaps the best park in Los Angeles.
