Nearly two years after we last dropped by, vertical construction is complete for a two-building mixed-use complex in East Hollywood.

Located at 5245 Santa Monica boulevard, the project will feature 49 apartments above 45,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  A five-story structure greets Santa Monica Boulevard, with upper levels set back to create terraces and an interior courtyard set into the building.  The back of the property, located on Virginia Avenue, will feature a smaller three-story edifice.

The Albert Group Architects designed the project, which will feature an exterior of reddish-brown sandstone and gray cement panels.

10-Story Apartment Building Proposed at 12th & Grand

A 37-story tower had previously been pitched for the property.

Three years after bursting on the scene with plans for a high-rise development near Staples Center, the local subsidiary of a Chinese real estate firm has instead opted for a more modest project in South Park.

Earlier today, City Century submitted an application to the L.A. Department of City Planning for the construction of a 10-story building at 1201 S.
