Hankey Investment, Jamison Properties Break Ground on $300M Residential Tower in Los Angeles’ Koreatown
LOS ANGELES — Hankey Investment Co. LP and Jamison Properties LP have broken ground on a $300 million residential tower in Koreatown, a submarket adjacent to downtown Los Angeles. Located at 2900 Wilshire Blvd., the unnamed development will rise 25 stories.
The project will include 644 apartment units and a 1,000-space parking podium. Floor plans will range from studios to three-bedroom units, as well as two-story penthouses. Monthly rents will range from $2,000 to $10,000.
A one-acre amenity deck will house a gym, clubhouse, pool, spa, business center, dog park and zen garden. The project will also include 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
The building’s design features a unique floor shape as to avoid casting shade on two nearby parks, as well as providing unobstructed views of downtown Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills.
“As the Los Angeles housing market continues to be impacted, additional rental units will help provide much-needed homes in a very desirable location,” says W. Scott Dobbins, president of Hankey.
The project team also includes Large Architecture, Dianna Wong Architecture + Interior Design, AECOM and Wilshire Construction. Completion is slated for early 2021.
