Nearly three decades after work first began on Westchester's Howard Hughes Center, construction is slated to begin soon on a low-rise residential development which would complete the build-out of the mixed-use campus.
Earlier this month, Dallas-based Mill Creek Residential Trust announced plans to build the Village at Howard Hughes Center, a 375-unit apartment complex. The project will rise from an approximately three-acres of land at 5901 and 6055 Center Drive, creating three six-story buildings with ground-level parking garages. When completed in 2018, the low-rise development will feature spacious outdoor courtyards and multiple rooftop entertainment decks.
Construction of the Village is scheduled to overlap with a similar project from Equity Residential known as Altitude at Howard Hughes Center. Altitude, which broke ground nearly one year ago, will consist of two six-story buildings with a cumulative 545 residential units. The project is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2016.
The Village and Altitude are both motivated in part by the increased need for additional housing in close proximity to the tech jobs of the Westside. In recent months, name-brand companies such as Google and Yahoo have announced plans to relocate their Southern California operations to the Playa Vista community, which is located less than a mile from the Howard Hughes Center.
