Just north of Expo/Bundy Station in Sawtelle, Hines, Affinius Capital, and Philena Properties have reached a key milestone at the West Edge development, commencing leasing efforts for the mixed-use complex's 600 apartments.

The Residences, located on the former site of the Martin Cadillac dealership at 12121 W. Olympic Boulevard, the new development includes a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, with 15 percent of the total units set aside for rent as "workforce housing," catering to moderate-income renters.

The seven-story, podium-type building, designed by AC Martin, includes floor-to-ceiling windows, with balconies and terrace decks on certain units. The apartments also come with appliances, as well as high-end finishes.


“West Edge will become the heart of West LA and create a revived community where people will come to live, gather, work, and play,” said Hines managing director Varun Akula. “Our future residents will experience a bespoke lifestyle at this world-class, transit-oriented development that is connected to all of Los Angeles.”

Besides housing, plans also call for amenities including a pool, a dining terrace, a movie screening area, a gym, a yoga deck, a library, coworking space, a lounge, a billiards room, and a dog run.

More information on the apartments, which are scheduled to be ready for move-ins in May, is available at https://liveatwestedge.com/.

While the housing may be the first component of the West Edge to make its debut, the most visible element of the project is a new 200,000-square-foot office building at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Bundy Drive which has been fully leased to League of Legends maker Riot Games.


Likewise, plans call for 80,000 square feet of retail space at street level - anchored by a Gelson's market - which will open onto a one-acre plaza at the center of the property.

Gensler and Rios serve as the architect for the office building and landscape architect for the overall project.
