A half-year since we last stopped by, exterior finishes are taking shape on a new mixed-use apartment building near the namesake intersection of the Pico-Robertson neighborhood.

Construction at 1415 S. Robertson BoulevardUrbanize LA

The project at 1415-1429 S. Robertson Boulevard, which replaced a smaller commercial building, is a seven-story edifice that will feature 64 apartments (plus an accessory dwelling unit) above ground-floor retail space and parking.

Approved plans rely on Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a larger structure than normally allowed by zoning rules. In exchange for the the incentives, six of the new apartments are to be set aside for rent as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

KFA Architecture is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which is shown in renderings with a rooftop deck and cantilevered balconies.
