Excavation is now underway for the Mansfield, the latest residential-retail complex to set up shop on the Miracle Mile

The seven-story project, which is rising from a 1.45-acre site at 5100 Wilshire Boulevard, consists of a seven-story structure featuring 138 apartments, approximately 13,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space and a 299-vehicle parking garage.  According to the website of the Korda Group - the Mansfield's Los Angeles-based developer - the building will also include two-floor lofts, private balconies, a swimming pool and a fitness center.

Renderings from Plus Architects portray the low-rise building with an Art Deco design, reminiscent of the 1931 theater which previously stood upon the property and other historic Miracle Mile buildings.

Construction of the Mansfield is expected to conclude in 2017.
