The concrete podium of Gardenhouse, a mixed-use condominium complex in Beverly Hills, is now wrapping up construction at 8600 Wilshire Boulevard.

The project, which is being developed by Palisades, will eventually consist of a three-to-five-story structure featuring 18 condominiums above street-level retail space.

MAD Architects is designing the mid-rise structure, which appears as a set of small houses atop a green wall facade.  Smaller townhomes are being built at the south side of the property, providing a transition to the scale of the adjacent residential neighborhood.

Completion is on pace to occur in 2018.

Construction is expected to begin in spring 2019.

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Philharmonic unveiled architectural designs by Gehry Partners for the new Judity and Thomas L. Beckmen YOLA Center @ Inglewood, the future permanent home of the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA). The $14.5-million project will transform a former branch of Security Pacific Bank at 101 S. La Brea Avenue into a light-filled, flexible facility capable of hosting rehearsals, classes, and performances.  It will serve up to 500 students each year from Inglewood and surrounding communities.
