A half-year after we last dropped in, a red tower crane has arrived at the site of a new apartment complex from Fairfield Residential in Canoga Park.

Construction of the LUME apartments in Warner CenterUrbanize LA

Located at the northwest corner of Kittridge Street and Independence Avenue, the wrap-style apartment complex will include 275 studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings, masking a central parking structure with capacity for more than 400 vehicles.

AO is designing the project, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary five-story structure with exterior finishes that include metal siding, brick veneer, and plaster. Approximately 32,000 square feet of open space amenities are planned within the complex, including a fitness center and a rooftop deck.

Completion of project, which was previously labeled as "LUME," is anticipated in 2022, according to a landing page on the Fairfield Residential website.

Fairfield is the latest developer to set its sights on the northern section of the Warner Center specific plan area, following Evolution Strategic Partners (which built the 271-unit Vert apartments one block west n Variel Street) and Hanover Company (responsible for the 394-unit Hanover Warner Center apartments located directly south across Kittridge).

Fairfield's other Los Angeles area projects include a proposed 370-unit apartment complex which would replace a warehouse in Glassell Park and a 362-unit development that would wrap Dinah's Family Restaurant in Westchester.
