With a tower crane now in place, construction for the Cobalt development in Palms has kicked into high gear.

Greystar Real Estate Partners is developing the mid-rise complex at 10601 Washington Boulevard, which will feature 135 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments atop 14,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  The project also calls for 11 units of low-income housing, 294 parking spaces and various residential amenities.

Santa Monica-based VTBS Architects is designing the seven-story development, which renderings portray in the contemporary style.

Completion of Cobalt is expected in Spring 2018.

In Inglewood, a local developer has filed plans to construct townhomes just west of La Brea Avenue. The proposed development, slated for an L-shaped property at 113-133 W. Plymouth Street, would replace 11 existing single-family residences with 20 three-story townhomes above a basement parking garage.
