At the one-time site of a concrete plant next to Metro's Expo/Sepulveda Station, construction is in full swing for a mixed-use complex from Carmel Partners.

The San Francisco-based developer broke ground on the project - known as Linea - in early 2017.  The project will consist of multiple concrete apartment buildings - highlighted by a 13-story tower - containing a total of 595 residential units and 5,000 square feet of street-fronting commercial uses.

The four-acre mixed-use complex is being designed by VTBS Architects, and will incorporate 40,000 square feet of outdoor amenities in the form of landscaped courtyards and rooftop observation spaces.  Plans also call for a fitness center and a club room.

Interior spaces within the project are to be designed by Rodrigo Vargas Design, while Bennitt Design Group is serving as landscape architects.

The $150-million project is one of two that Carmel is building along the Expo Line, joining the even larger Cumulus development at La Cienega/Jefferson Station.  Other developers are building large mixed-use projects near Expo Line stops in Culver City and West Los Angeles.

Linea is located one block from the northern end of a so-called "proof-of-concept" tunnel that SpaceX-founder Elon Musk hopes to build for his latest venture - the Boring Company.
