More than one year after our last update, construction continues to slowly progress for a pair apartment buildings from Aragon Properties Corporation just west of Downtown Los Angeles and Vista Hermosa Park.
When we last stopped by, the wrapping had just started to come off from the new podium-type building at 1315-132 W. Colton Street. Now, its sister project at 1314-1320 W. Court Street finds itself in a similar state.
According to project entitlements, the twin six-story buildings will feature a combined total of 120 apartments and parking for 149 vehicles at completion. Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom floor plans, with 10 to be set aside for rent by very low-income households.
Irvine-based Coe Architecture designed both buildings, which are described in a project narrative as featuring a "strong lattice of white frames" that references the Los Angeles street grid. Besides housing, the buildings will include open space amenities such as a community room and rooftop decks.
Besides its developments on Court and Colton, Aragon Properties is also behind a proposed 204-unit development on Sunset Boulevard.
