Just three months after our last update, wood framing has already reached its peak for a new affordable housing development at 1999 W. 3rd Street in Westlake.

The $74-million development - the first on West Coast for the Jonathan Rose Companies - consists of a seven-story building that will feature 137 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments reserved for households earning between 30 and 80 percent of the area median income level.

Brooks + Scarpa is designing the podium-type building, alongside Tina Chee Landscape Studio and Argento / Graham. Plans call for approximately 10,000 square feet of resident amenities, including fitness rooms, lounges, and workspaces. A breezeway will also connect the new construction to the Miramar Towers, and existing housing complex which sits within the same property.

The project, which is being built as a joint venture with Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation, was set to open in January 2025 at the time of its groundbreaking.

The existing Miramar Towers building, completed in the 1970s, features 157 homes. The new project was enabled by a lot split of the surrounding property, which allows the applicant to take advantage of unused development rights, as well as land now used as a grass lawn.
