The wood frame of a new apartment complex is now taking shape in Westwood, replacing an older multifamily building.

The project, located on a single parcel at 10993 W. Wellworth Avenue, consists of a seven-story building featuring eight two- and three-bedroom apartments above an underground parking structure.

Architect Jamie B. Myer is designing the mid-rise structure, which is highlighted by two-story penthouse units featuring private roof decks.

An expected completion date for the development is unclear.
