Nearly two years after breaking ground at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Wilton Place, wood framing has finally begun to climb at the construction site of a mixed-use development from Jamison Services, Inc.

The 3980 Wilshire development, which replaced several small commercial buildings, will consist of a seven-story building featuring 228 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and 340 basement parking spaces.  

The contemporary podium-type building is being designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, and will be clad with with aluminum, cement plaster, and perforated metal screens.  Architectural plans show amenities such as a rooftop deck, a fitness center, a swimming pool, and a courtyard.

Jamison Services, Koreatown's largest commercial landlord and most prolific residential builder, is in the process of converting a 1950s office building across the street into apartments.

The developer has previously worked with KTGY on a similar mixed-use project on Olympic Boulevard.
