A pair of early 20th-century apartment buildings has bit the dust in Westlake, allowing a modern mixed-use development to rise in their place.

The property, located just outside the Downtown freeway ring at 1312-1320 W. 8th Street, is slated for a six-story building featuring 36 apartments - including three for very low-income households - above 2,800 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  Plans also call for 50 parking spaces, as well as an amenity deck at the roof level.

A conceptual rendering posted to LoopNet shows a nondescript mid-rise structure wrapped in stone, stucco, and glass.

Just north along Hartford Avenue, a similar multifamily residential development is now wrapping up construction.

Two Residential-Retail Developments Coming to Cloverfield & Broadway

Three-story buildings to rise in Santa Monica.

This week, the Santa Monica Architectural Review Board will consider a pair of mixed-use apartment buildings planned at the northwest corner of Broadway and Cloverfield Boulevard.

Both projects, which would replace several small office buildings, are proposed by Los Angeles-based real estate firm LaTerra Development with design work by Venice-based Tighe Architecture.
