Two tower cranes now stands high above Westchester's Howard Hughes Center, as construction for a market rate apartment building from Mill Creek Residential Trust kicks into high gear.

The Village at Howard Hughes Center, now rising from a once vacant lot at 5901 Center Drive, will offer a series of six-story buildings featuring 375 apartments, 1,500 square feet of commercial space and a variety of communal amenities.

Van Tilburg, Banyard & Soderbergh, a Santa Monica-based architecture firm, is designing the project.  However, no official renderings have been released.

The project sits directly across the street from Altitude, a similar apartment complex recently completed by Equity Residential.

Small Apartment Building Slated for Crescent Heights Boulevard

Three-story, 12-unit building would rise on two parcels.

Last week, the City of West Hollywood's Design Review Subcommittee considered a proposal to construct a small apartment building on two parcels at 1011 and 1015 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard.

The project, which is being designed by Culver City-based architecture firm Modative, calls for the construction of a three-story, 12-unit building featuring 20 parking spaces.  Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings, including one unit of affordable housing.
