Close to one year after starting work in Inglewood, an orange tower crane has arrived at the southwest corner of La Brea and Florence Avenues, as construction ramps up for a new mixed-use apartment complex.

The project, currently named for its address at 201 N. La Brea Avenue, will eventually consist of a six-story building featuring 144 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above ground-floor commercial space.

Urban Architecture Lab is designing the apartment complex, which is portrayed in renderings with an exterior of stucco and corrugated metal panels. Amenity decks are proposed above the project's podium and roof levels.

Los Angeles County Assessor's records list the owner of the site as 201 North La Brea, LLC, an Aliso Viejo-based entity linked to Frontera Capital, LLC.

KCS West is serving as the project's general contractor.

The project site sits directly across La Brea Avenue from Astra, a larger mixed-use complex from Thomas Safran & Associates which will include 242 apartments and a ground-floor Target on a site which also fronts Market Street.

Both projects sit within walking distance of the K Line's Downtown Inglewood Station, and potentially in close proximity to the northern terminus of Inglewood's proposed people mover system, which would link the city's historic commercial core to SoFi Stadium and Intuit Dome, the future home of the Los Angeles Clippers.
