A year-and-a-half after breaking ground, co-developers Hankey Capital and Jamison Services, Inc. have completed vertical construction of a new apartment tower in Koreatown.

The project, now branded as Kurve on Wilshire, is located at the southwest corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Hoover Street.  The 25-story building will eventually feature 644 apartments above a 1,100-car parking garage and 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Large Architecture designed the development, includes a six-level podium capped by a landscaped amenity deck.  While the interior of the podium structure will house parking, its appearance is masked by apartments along its Wilshire-facing exterior.

The tower above has an amorphous footprint and tiered building heights, specifically designed to limit shading on Lafayette Park.

Most of the building's apartments will come in studio, one-, and two-bedroom floor plans, although the project will also include two- and three-bedroom penthouses.  Rents are expected to start at $2,200 per month - an increase from the $2000 per month anticipated when the project broke ground in 2019.

Completion is on pace to occur in 2021.

Jamison and Hankey's past projects include the Circa apartment towers in Downtown Los Angeles.  The firms are also partnering on a new apartment complex near the Vermont/Beverly subway station.

The Kurve on Wilshire site sits across Hoover from a new bridge housing facility which will cater to single women with children.
