One year after commencing work, the first West Coast development from the Jonathan Rose Companies is starting to take shape in Westlake.

The $74-million development, now rising just east of Alvarado Street at 1999 W. 3rd Street, will eventually consist of a seven-story building featuring 137 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments reserved for households earning between 30 and 80 percent of the area median income level.

Brooks + Scarpa headlines the design team for 1999 W. 3rd Street, and is joined by Tina Chee Landscape Studio and Argento / Graham. The roughly 100,000-square-foot development will incorporate 10,000 square feet of resident amenities such as fitness rooms, lounges, and workspaces. Plans also call for a breezeway that would connect 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.
