In Sawtelle, wood framing is rising at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Federal Avenue, as prolific Koreatown developer Jamison Services, Inc. makes progress on a rare projects outside of its home turf.
The development site, located at 11600 W. Santa Monica Boulevard, will eventually consist of a five-story building containing 100 one- and two-bedroom apartments above basement parking for 144 vehicles.
Jamison entitled the site for development using density bonus incentives to permit a larger structures than otherwise allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, nine of the apartments are to be set aside for rent by very low-income households.
BSB Design is the architect behind the project, which has been named Amara, per the Jamison Services website. The contemporary low-rise structure will have a U-shaped footprint surround a courtyard, with amenities such as a gym, a recreation room, and a rooftop deck.
Jamison, which has dozens of projects in pre-development or construction in Koreatown, has also ventured outside of its home turf to develop multifamily buildings in Hollywood, East Hollywood, and West Los Angeles.
The 11600 Santa Monica site is neighbored by several properties also slated for redevelopment, including an adjoining strip mall and the former site of a Vons supermarket at Santa Monica and Barrington Avenue.
