In Carthay, prolific Westside apartment builder Wiseman Residential has commenced work on its latest project.

Last month, the Sawtelle-based developer secured building permits for a new six-story, 125-unit apartment complex at 6055 W. Pico Boulevard. The project, which would rise at the northwest corner of Pico's intersection with Crescent Heights Boulevard, will also include 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 129 vehicle parking spaces in a semi-subterranean garage.

Project entitlements include Transit Oriented Incentives, which permitted a larger structure than otherwise allowed by zoning rules due to the property's location near high-frequency bus lines. In exchange for the bonuses, Wiseman is required to set aside 13 of the new apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Uriu & Associates is designing 6055 Pico, which was previously described as incorporating Spanish influences and traditional materials. Planned amenities include an interior courtyard and a pool deck.

The project site sits just two blocks west of the intersection of Pico Boulevard and Point View Avenue, where Los Angeles-based Cityview recently completed vertical construction of its own mixed-use apartment complex: a seven-story, 123-unit building.

Wiseman, in addition to its Carthay project, has also developed multiple projects along Pico in the neighboring Mid-Wilshire community.
