Just west of Barnsdall Art Park, construction has gone vertical for a pair of mixed-use apartment buildings. 


The projects, located at 4850 and 4900 Hollywood Boulevard, are both being built by Century City-based real estate investment firm LaTerra Development.  The five- and six-story buildings will include a combined total of 246 residential units with approximately 22,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

The larger building, 4900 Hollywood, will include 24 units of deed-restricted affordable housing.

Urban Architecture Lab is designing both apartment buildings, which will consist of wood-frame construction above concrete podiums.  Plans call for courtyards, rooftop decks, and other common amenities for use by residents.

Additionally, both developments are designed to preserve view corridors from Barnsdall Park, which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2019.

LaTerra is also in the midst of construction at mixed-use and multifamily housing projects in Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Mar Vista.  The developer is planning additional housing complexes in Burbank, Westlake, and Hollywood, and West Hollywood.
