Construction is scheduled to begin next month on a high-end residential development adjacent to L'Ermitage Beverly Hills.

Empire at Burton Way, a luxury condominium complex from Los Angeles-based Empire Property Group, will rise from a roughly quarter-acre property at 9265 Burton Way.  Plans for the five-story edifice call for 23 residential units -including two reserved for very-low income households- and underground parking accommodations for up to 48 vehicles.

Empire Property Group will entice potential residents with their project's close proximity to a variety of high-end stores and restaurants.  Prominent shopping districts along Rodeo Drive and Robertson Boulevard are both located within a one-mile radius of the development.  Further incentives will include hotel-like amenities and a a scenic rooftop common area.

According to an official website, the low-rise structure will feature "an innovative combination of imported building materials with superior finishes."  Designs from Levin-Morris Architects indicate that proposed exterior materials include cement plaster, natural stone, anodized aluminum and wood cladding.  The project will also maintain a series of palm trees along Burton Way, responding to the linear rhythm of the front facade.

Completion of Empire at Burton Way is expected in slightly over two years.  The project follows a similar residential complex recently completed by Empire Property Group in Bel Air.

Proposed 77-Story Tower Would Be L.A.'s Tallest Building

Chinese developer plans the tallest building West of the Mississippi River.

Last year, the Wilshire Grand claimed the title of the West Coast's tallest building, with a slender spire that peaks 1,100 feet above Downtown Los Angeles.  But a newly proposed tower just up the street seems to be gunning for its crown at the highest tower west of the Mississippi River.

Last week, Chinese developer Shenzhen New World Group filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to redevelop the 1980s L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown at 333 S.
