We don't hear about Rampart Village very often, do we?  Well, here it goes.  A Community of Friends, a non-profit affordable housing developer, recently filed plans for a mixed-use project at the southern end of neighborhood.  The project, dubbed "Beverly Terrace," would occupy a currently vacant lot bounded by Beverly Boulevard and Commonwealth Avenue.  The five-story building, designed by Playa Del Rey based Egan Simon Architecture, would contain 40 apartments, a 3,607 square foot child care facility, and 368 square feet of office space.  Beverly Terrace checks in with just 29 at-grade parking spaces in addition to 24 bike parking stalls.  Amenities include an 865 square foot recreation room and a 2,100 square foot roof top deck.  The project has an estimated budget of $13.2 million, with completion expected in May 2016.

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.
