The Lincoln Boulevard Collection, located at the southeast corner of Lincoln and Colorado Avenue, will consist of two separate buildings featuring approximately 280 apartments and 25,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. The first phase of the development, located directly at the intersection, consists of a five-story building with 90 apartments, over 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and two levels of basement parking for up to 168 vehicles.
Michael W. Folonis Architects designed the mid-rise structure, which is higlighted by a double-height plaza space located directly at the corner of Lincoln and Colorado. The U-shaped apartment levels will wrap around a podium amenity deck.
The site of the project's larger second phase - featuring 180 dwelling units - is being used as a staging area for construction.
The property sits a short distance east of the Expo Line's Downtown Santa Monica terminus, and joins a 64-unit affordable housing complex that is now under construction across the street.
