In Beverly Grove, developer ETCO Homes has topped out on yet another condominium complex.


The Beverly Hills-based firm's latest project, located at 411-439 S. Hamel Road, consists of a four-story building featuring 37 residential units.  The development site, which sits just south of Burton Way, was previously improved with five smaller apartment buildings.

The wood-frame development, designed by Kevin Tsai Architecture, is split into two wings flanking a central courtyard.

The project is one of a slew of new housing developments built by ETCO in the Beverly Grove community, joining four projects now in construction near Melrose Avenue.

The Hamel Road property is located a short walk from the intersection of Burton Way and San Vicente Boulevard, where two high-rise apartment towers are slated to replace a vacant retail building and a portion of a church.  To the west, construction is currently in progress a new Four Seasons-branded condo complex at 3rd Street and Wetherly Avenue.
