In Sawtelle, construction is in the home stretch for a mixed-use development from Markwood at 11701 Santa Monica Boulevard.

Located at the northwest corner of Santa Monica and Barrington Avenue, the project consists of a five-story building which will feature 51 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments and 939 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Street-fronting live/work units are will line the Barrington side of the building, while two subterranean parking levels sit below.

Steinberg Hart is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which closely resembles conceptual renderings produced prior to the start of construction. Plans call for an O-shaped footprint from the second floor up, wrapping around a central courtyard. Additional open space will be located at the rooftop.

At the time construction began for 11701 Santa Monica in October 2021, completion was expected in roughly 22 months.

The project sits along a busy stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard to the west of the I-405 Freeway, which has recently seen the construction of new housing developments from CIM Group and Jamison Services, Inc. A larger project is also planned for the former site of a Vons supermarket at the southeast corner of Santa Monica and Barrington, while a new co-living complex is set to rise from a neighboring site the north.

Markwood, in addition to the Sawtelle development, is planning a similar apartment complex at the intersection of Melrose and La Brea Avenues in the Fairfax neighborhood and recently broke ground on a project on Adams Boulevard in South Los Angeles.
