An initial study published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning offers up the first glimpse of a proposed Koreatown high-rise from Maxsum Development.

The project, which would rise on a roughly one-acre site at 3800 W. 6th Street, calls for the construction of a 20-story building that would feature 122 condominiums, a 192-room hotel, and 15,200 square feet of commercial space at the first and second floors.  An existing commercial building and a parking lot would be demolished to make way for the development.

MVE + Partners is designing the tower, which would rise to a maximum height of 260 feet above street level.  Renderings portray a contemporary concrete and glass structure, with a tower mass rising above a seven-story mass spanning across the property.  Hotel uses would occupy the third through eighth floors of the building, while condominiums would rise above.  All parking - for a total of 266 vehicles - would be locatedwithin three basement levels.

Open space amenities are planned throughout the building, including a pool deck atop the seven-story structure.

Construction of 3800 W. 6th Street would occur over approximately 18 to 24 months, although a precise timeline is not specified in the initial study.

Maxsum Development has numerous projects in the planning stages across Koreatown, including a full-block apartment complex and a hotel along Olympic Boulevard.

A similar 10-story development featuring residential units, a hotel and retail space is proposed to replace a post office on the north side of 6th Street.
