On the southern fringe of Downtown Los Angeles, construction is underway for a mixed-use development that will add residential density near an underutilized stop on Metro's Blue Line.

The low-rise complex from developer Meta Housing Corporation is rising from an approximately .67-acre site at 722-736 E. Washington Boulevard.  According to plans filed with the City of Los Angeles, the project will include 55 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments situated above 1,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking accommodations for up to 63 vehicles.

Plans call for a slew of amenities similar to those in nearby market rate communities, including a community room, a computer room, on-site laundry facilities and two courtyards.

A rendering from Los Angeles-based Y&M Architects portrays a modern, four-story structure clad with a glass storefront and blue flourishes.

The project also includes the renovation of an adjacent four-story building which dates back to 1930.

Construction of the Washington 722 TOD is scheduled for completion in 2016.

Checking in on the Slow-Moving 1133 Hope Condo Tower

The 28-story tower broke ground in March 2017.

Slowly but surely, the concrete frame of 1133 Hope Street rises in South Park. The 28-story tower, located just east of Metro's Pico Station, will feature 200 residential units above 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail uses and a parking podium upon completion.  Plans for the mixed-use project dated back to 2005, when the Canadian development firm Amacon initially submitted plans for a 35-story building on the site.
