In Historic Filipinotown, a small commercial building dating to the late 1920s is poised to make way for mixed-income housing.

In July, the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety issued building permits to property owner Unique Construction & Development for a new apartment complex at 3001 W. Beverly Boulevard.  The project, which would rise from a corner lot at Beverly and Reno Street, calls for the construction of a six-story edifice featuring 46 studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings over a 36-car podium garage.

Tighe Architecture is designing the new development, which is portrayed in renderings as a contemporary low-rise building clad in concrete and corrugated metal panels.  Plans call for an outdoor amenity deck above the podium level.

Construction of the apartment complex is expected to take approximately 18-to-24 months, says architect Patrick Tighe via e-mail.

The project joins a handful of similar multifamily residential developments now in the works for the northwest corner of the Westlake community.  Two blocks away on Temple Street, developer Schon Tepler Group is now in the midst of construction at a mixed-use project featuring 42 residential units above ground-floor commercial space.  Meanwhile at 235 N. Hoover Street, an empty lot that was once home to Temple Community Hospital is slated for the construction of a 221-unit apartment complex from LaTerra Development.
