Vertical construction is nearing completion for 1411 Highland Avenue, a new mixed-use development from the Lennar Corporation.

The six-story structure - located on a formerly vacant lot between Leland Way and DeLongpre Avenue - will feature 76 luxury apartments and 2,500 square feet of ground-level commercial floor area.  Plans call for a mixture of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units and underground parking accommodations for up to 143 vehicles.

Designs from Torrance-based Withee Malcolm Architects are intended to evoke the feel of classic mid-century residential complexes in the nearby Hollywood hills.  The building will also feature amenities similar to those of a boutique hotel, including a lounge area, a fitness center and a rooftop pool deck.

Construction is currently on pace for completion in 2016.

Six-Story Apartment Building to Rise on Westlake Parking Lot

Another project through the Transit Oriented Communities program.

A 9,300-square-foot surface parking lot in Westlake is slated for development, according to plans filed last week with the City of Los Angeles.

The property, located at 366 S. Loma Drive, could see the construction of a six-story building featuring 39 apartments - including affordable units - above a partially subterranean parking garage.
