Located at the northeast corner of 12th Street and Grand Avenue in South Park, the 37-story building will offer 536 residential units in addition to 13,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial uses and parking for 801 vehicles.
AC Martin designed the contemporary glass-and-steel tower, which features outdoor decks above its roof and its parking podium. Plans call for amenities including a fitness center, a half-court basketball court, a sand volleyball court, and a dog park.
The building will stand 392 feet in height at completion, according to the website of its general contractor Swinerton.
Mack Urban, along with its partner AECOM Capital, is also building a half-acre pocket park at the foot of the tower. The new green space is being designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios.
Aven is the second component of a multi-phase project which encompasses five properties in South Park. The first phase of the development - the WREN apartments - is already open one block south on Pico Boulevard. Later phases of the project include a proposed hotel at 12th and Olive Streets, and 51- and 60-story towers on 11th Street.
