Work is well underway at the Cumulus development in West Adams, with the concrete podium for the tower already several levels above ground.
San Francisco-based developer Carmel Partners is behind the behemoth complex, which sits on an 11-acre site that was once occupied by Cumulus Media's radio broadcast facility. The project will consist of a combined 1,210 apartments and 100,000 square feet of commercial space divided between two separate buildings.
A podium-type mid-rise structure fronting La Cienega and Jefferson Boulevards is being designed by TCA Architects. It will house a majority of the project's residential units - a total of 910 apartments - as well as amenities, and ground-floor retail and restaurant space.
The second building is a 30-story tower being designed by Chicago-based firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz. It will hold the remaining 300 apartments atop a parking podium and additional amenities.
Both buildings will wrap around a publicly accessible one-acre park, designed by landscape architecture firm Studio MLA.
This is the second multifamily project in the area for Carmel, who is also responsible for Linea, a 595-unit development currently rising at Expo/Sepulveda Station.
