LOS ANGELES — Manhattan West Real Estate, a division of Manhattan West, and its joint venture partner Local Development plan to develop two multifamily properties totaling 102 units in Los Angeles’ Echo Park neighborhood.
The partnership is currently pursuing development entitlements with the City of Los Angeles via its Transit Oriented Communities Affordable Housing Incentive Program for 801-809 N. Alvarado St. and 900-908 N. Alvarado St., which are situated one block apart from each other.
Earlier this month, the joint venture acquired 900 Alvarado, which totals 15,000 square feet of land, for $4 million. In December 2021, it purchased 801 Alvarado, a 12,678-square-foot site, for $4.2 million. The existing vacant structures on the sites are scheduled for demolition in early September. Once entitlements are finalized, construction on both projects is slated to begin in late 2023, with completion targeted for approximately two years later.
The properties will offer one-, two- and three-bedroom units with balconies in most units and a rooftop deck, among other amenities. The property at 900 Alvarado will feature 47 apartments over a fitness center and two-level, 48-car, subterranean parking garage. The 801 Alvarado property will offer 55 units over a two-level, 40-car, subterranean parking garage.
Warren Techentin is designing 801 Alavardo and DE Architects is designing 900 Alvarado.
West Los Angeles-based Hankey Capital originated the senior financing on the acquisitions of both properties.
