Just south of the namesake intersection of the Pico-Robertson neighborhood, wood framing is rising for a new mixed-use apartment complex.

Construction at 1415-1429 S Robertson BoulevardUrbanize LA

The project, which replaced a commercial building at 1415-1429 S. Robertson Boulevard, will eventually consist of a seven-story building featuring 64 apartments and a single accessory dwelling unit (making for a total of 65 residences). Plans also call for ground-floor commercial space and a single level of subterranean parking.

While the project is a by-right development, it is designed in accordance with the Transit Oriented Communities incentives, which permit larger structures than normally allowed by zoning rules in exchange for the provision of on-site affordable housing. In the case of the Robertson Avenue project, plans call for six units to be set aside for rent at the extremely low-income level.

KFA Architecture is designing the project, which is portrayed in a renderings as a contemporary podium-type building wrapped with inset and cantilevered balconies, and capped with a rooftop deck.
