Los Angeles-based development firm Hypericum Companies has started construction for On Butler, a mixed-use complex near Sawtelle Boulevard.

The six-story building, now rising at 11421 W. Olympic Boulevard, will feature 70 market-rate apartments, seven units of affordable housing and roughly 6,500 square feet of street-fronting retail space.
