Across the street from Metro's Vermont/Beverly Station in Koreatown, vertical construction is underway for a the latest mixed-use project from co-developers Hankey Group and Jamison Services, Inc.

Located on the former site of a car dealership at 200 N. Vermont Avenue, the project will eventually consist of a six-story structure featuring 490 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above 35,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a two-level semi-subterranean parking garage.

Hankey and Jamison Services entitled the project using Transit Oriented Communities incentives to secure approvals for a larger structure than otherwise allowed by zoning rules. In exchange 49 of the apartments are to be reserved as extremely low-income affordable housing for a period of 55 years.

MVE + Partners is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which will incorporate multiple landscaped decks and courtyards, as well as amenities such as a swimming pool, a half basketball court, a game room, a screening room, and co-working space.

The apartment complex is the third large project built as a joint venture between Hankey and Jamison Services, following the Circa apartment towers in Downtown Los Angeles, and the 25-story Kurve development at 2900 Wilshire Boulevard.
