Construction is underway on a new residential-retail complex near the Hollywood and Highland Center.

The project, located at 1737 North Las Palmas Avenue, will consist of a six-story structure featuring 82 apartments, 125 underground parking spaces and an approximately 1,200-square-foot ground-level coffee shop.  Planned amenities include an outdoor pool and spa deck, a gymnasium and a rooftop observation area.
