Developers Hillock Land Company and Luminor Properties have broken ground on a mixed-use apartment complex in North Hollywood - the second joint venture between the two firms.

The project, which is replacing a small office building at 11301-11321 Camarillo Street, will consist of a five-story structure featuring 60 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments - including six for very low-income households - above approximately 2,800 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  Plans also call for a central courtyard, a community room, and 81 parking spaces at-grade and in a basement garage.

Brooks + Scarpa is designing the podium-type development, which will be clad mostly with corrugated aluminum screening.  The project's highlight is a large opening facing south toward Camarillo Street, providing private open space with a connection to the surrounding neighborhood.

Completion is anticipated in June 2020, according to a representative of Luminor Properties.

In Valley Village, Luminor and Hillock are in the midst of construction on a similar 19-unit development at 11700 Magnolia Boulevard.
