Across the street from Sony Pictures Studios, wood framing is on the rise for a mixed-use apartment complex from California Landmark Group in Palms.

The project, which began work last year on the former site of the BTS Thrift Store at 10401 Washington Boulevard, will eventually consist of an eight-story building featuring 112 studio and one-bedroom apartments - including 15 extremely low-income affordable units - above 2,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for 71 vehicles.

California Landmark Group entitled the site for development using Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a larger building than otherwise allowed by zoning rules.

Abramson Architects is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which is shown in renderings with an exterior lined by cantilevered glass balconies. Proposed on-site amenities would include lounges and a rooftop deck.

The project is the latest in a series of mixed-use and multifamily residential developments for California Landmark Group in the Palms-Culver City area, following the 3838 apartments on Dunn Drive ( and a new eight-story complex built on Venice Boulevard.
