Developer CIM Group is now in the midst of construction on a multifamily residential complex in Westchester, a short distance from Los Angeles International Airport.

The La Tijera Apartments, now rising from a triangular one-acre site and La Tijera Boulevard and Sepulveda Eastway, will feature 136 rental units in addition to amentities such as a fitness room, a club room, a rooftop deck, underground parking for 221 vehicles and 136 long-term bicycle parking spaces.

The project is being designed by the Architecture Design Collaborative, a full-service architecture firm with offices in both Southern California and Colorado.  Their website provides elevation plans for the La Tijera development, which depict a wood-frame structure coated in cement plaster and lined with glass balconies.

A timeline for the project is not clear.

The rise of Silicon Beach to the north has recently brought a series of similar developments to Westchester, including several new apartment buildings now taking shape at the Howard Hughes Center.
