Late in 2015, developer Genton Property Group announced a ceremonial groundbreaking for a posh condo tower in Beverly Grove.  Until recently, "ceremonial" remained the operative word in the statement.

Construction is now beginning for the Four Seasons Private Residences - Los Angeles, a 12-story tower at the southeast corner of 3rd Street and Wetherly Drive.  The mid-rise structure will feature 59 luxury condominiums, commanding prices as high as $50 million.

Architecture firm CallisonRTKL designed the project, which blends mid-century modern architecture with contemporary materials.  The building will feature three wings, including two low-rise sections along Wetherly and Almont Drive with townhouse-style units.

Past coverage has estimated an approximately two-year construction timeline for the project, placing completion sometime in 2019.
