In Mar Vista, general contractor Harpco Construction sends word that construction kicked off last month for a new multifamily residential development at the intersection of National and Federal Boulevards.

Located at the southwest corner of the intersection, the project consists of a four-story edifice that will feature 15 one-bedroom apartments above a single level of at-grade parking. Plans call for two very low-income affordable units, permitting a larger structure than otherwise allowed by zoning rules in accordance with the city's state density bonus ordinance.

Aaron Brumer & Associates is designing the project, which will be clad in vertically-oriented, dark grey corrugated metal panels, accented with light-colored stucco and recessed balconies.

Per a representative of Harpco, construction at 11600 National is expected to occur over roughly 16 months, placing the project's expected completion date in late 2023.
