A collection of small residential buildings in Koreatown have met with the wrecking ball, and are now being replaced with larger apartment complexes.

At 1055 S. Serrano Avenue, the concrete base of a four-story, 20-unit apartment building is now taking shape.  The low-rise structure is being built atop a two-story underground parking garage.

One block east at 1039 S. Hobart Boulevard, the wooden framework of a three-story, 28-unit building is nearing completion.  Architect Sandra J. Baik designed the contemporary low-rise building.

Major Koreatown landlord Jamison Services, Inc. is also building two larger residential buildings nearby at 1011 S. Serrano Avenue and at 3060 W. Olympic Boulevard.

Mixed-Use Development Proposed for Reseda Boulevard

Five-story building to rise north of Ventura Boulevard.

A one-story commercial building in Tarzana could make way for a mixed-use development, according to plans filed earlier today with the City of Los Angeles.  The project, slated for two parcels at 5431-5505 N. Reseda Boulevard would consist of a five-story building featuring 40 residential units - including five set aside for very-low-income households - above 2,540 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
