Nearly one year after our last update, Jamison Services, Inc. is putting the finishing touches on its latest mixed-use development at the intersection of Vermont Avenue and James M. Wood Boulevard in Koreatown.

The project, which began construction in July 2019, consists of a six-story building that will feature 193 apartments above 19,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 249 basement parking stalls.

The apartment building was among the earliest in the City of Los Angeles entitled using the Transit Oriented Communities incentives, which permit new buildings located near bus and rail lines to exceed certain zoning limits relative to height, setbacks, and density if they include deed-restricted affordable housing.  In the case of 900 Vermont, Jamison will set aside 20 apartments at rents considered affordable to extremely low-income households.

LARGE Architecture designed the apartment complex, which includes an exterior of metal panels and plaster.  A rooftop amenity deck caps the podium-type structure, while a mid-block setback on James M. Wood Boulevard is used for automobile access.

The 900 Vermont project is among dozens of Jamison Services developments in the Koreatown community, including a smaller mixed-use building that also recently reached completion a few blocks west at 8th and Berendo Streets.

Other developers are also in the mix.  On the opposite side of Vermont Avenue, EGC Real Estate Group is now in the midst of construction on a six-story, 67-unit apartment complex with ground-floor commercial space.
