More than one year after we last dropped by, construction has gone vertical for West L.A.'s 11800 Santa Monica Boulevard development.

The visually striking five-story building, a collaboration between CIM Group and LOHA, will feature 147 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments in addition to 40,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

The mixed-use complex features a number of communal amenities, including a fitness center, a swimming pool and a clubhouse.

CIM and LOHA have also teamed up for a similar development proposed for a property directly to the east.

Apartments With Retail Planned West of the Grove

Low-rise building would feature 50 apartments over ground-floor commercial uses.

An auto body repair shop and two small commercial buildings located near the Grove could make way for a residential-retail complex.

Earlier today, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a mixed-use project at 8000-8014 W. 3rd Street in the Beverly Grove neighborhood.  Plans call for a 50-unit building - including five affordable apartments - with approximately 7,250 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
