New Residential Building Springs from Site of Former Carwash
Construction has begun on the four-story residential building at 7617 Santa Monica Blvd.
The mixed-use project, built atop a former carwash location, will feature 9,000+ sq. feet of commercial space on the ground floor and 71 apartments, including 11 affordable housing units.
“Taking cues from local building vernaculars, 7617 Santa Monica Boulevard was made to embrace the climate of Los Angeles and create a subtle material change along the historic boulevard,” a description on the developer’s website reads. “As a medium scale residential development, the project creates density while respecting the surrounding neighborhood.
Designed with varying setbacks from SMB, the project’s varied mass increases usable outdoor space on the ground floor while creating outdoor common areas and widening the sidewalk. The result is a new housing project that reinterprets the form and materials traditionally used to define West Hollywood.”
7617 Santa Monica Blvd. is a project of LaTerra Development, designed by Office Untitled.
Construction is expected to take about 30 months.
