Vertical construction is nearing completion for CIM Group's latest mixed-use development at 11800 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Los Angeles.

The five-story building, located on the former site of an automobile dealership, will feature 147 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments above 40,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  The project was approved with density bonus incentives, in exchange for setting aside units as affordable housing.

LOHA is designing the podium-type building, which features varied roof heights and "strategic voids" that open the building's common areas to the exterior.  These include amenity spaces such as a pool and spa deck.

CIM and LOHA are teaming on a similar development just east on Santa Monica Boulevard, which will also replace a shuttered car dealership.
