Well over one year after we last checked in, rebar pillars and concrete have morphed into fully-framed apartment buildings at Uncommon's 24 campus in Chatsworth.

The mixed-use complex - a former L.A. Times printing facility that now serves as the headquarters of MGA Entertainment, maker of the Bratz doll line - was approved nearly one decade ago for redevelopment with 255,000 square feet of offices and 660 apartments with shops and restaurants on the ground floor.

Initial components of the project, located at Prairie and Winnetka, have already been completed. Construction commenced in 2022 for the final components of the project along the southern edge of the site adjacent to a Metrolink and Amtrak rail corridor.

Works Progress Architecture is designing the project, billed as the  third phase of the 24 campus, which consists of six-story buildings featuring 89 and 172 apartments.

"Four distinct landscapes were conceptually developed and programmed from an extensive list of amenities including, but not limited to; community gardens, a public plaza and amphitheater, children’s playground and a community dog park," reads a design narrative provided by Works Progress. "These programs extend upwards and onto the building, forming a continuous vegetated link between the ground level plaza and rooftop amenities of various heights."

Works Progress has recently collaborated with Uncommon on a handful of upcoming projects in the City of Los Angeles, including proposed apartment buildings in Van Nuys and East Hollywood.
