Local real estate developer California Landmark is finishing exterior work on the LC, a new residential-retail complex which straddles the border between Hollywood and Larchmont Village.

The $40 million project consists of three-and-four-story buildings on a 1.25-acre property bounded by Melrose, Camerford and El Centro Avenues.  The project, located at the northern terminus of Larchmont Avenue, consists of 85 one-and-two-bedroom apartments, approximately 3,500 square feet of street-level restaurant space and an underground parking garage.  Individual units will range from 600 to 1,100 square feet in size, supplemented by communal amenities such as a rooftop deck, a media room and a full-service fitness center.

Like several other developments from California Landmark, the LC was designed by Agoura Hills-based PK Architecture.  Exterior materials for the low-rise complex consist primarily of glass and stucco, accented by anondized aluminum paneling.  Earlier reports from the Larchmont Buzz also indicate that the developer hopes to include extra-wide sidewalks along Melrose Avenue, effectively creating an outdoor plaza with space for sitting and walking.
