Vertical construction is nearing completion for CIM Group's latest mixed-use development at 11800 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Los Angeles.

The five-story building, located on the former site of an automobile dealership, will feature 147 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments above 40,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  The project was approved with density bonus incentives, in exchange for setting aside units as affordable housing.

LOHA is designing the podium-type building, which features varied roof heights and "strategic voids" that open the building's common areas to the exterior.  These include amenity spaces such as a pool and spa deck.

CIM and LOHA are teaming on a similar development just east on Santa Monica Boulevard, which will also replace a shuttered car dealership.

Six-Story Apartment Building to Rise on Westlake Parking Lot

Another project through the Transit Oriented Communities program.

A 9,300-square-foot surface parking lot in Westlake is slated for development, according to plans filed last week with the City of Los Angeles.

The property, located at 366 S. Loma Drive, could see the construction of a six-story building featuring 39 apartments - including affordable units - above a partially subterranean parking garage.
