One year after we last checked in, the wrapping is off at Ferrante, developer Geoff Palmer's largest multifamily residential complex yet on the perimeter of Downtown Los Angeles.
Located on a 10-acre property at Temple Street and Beaudry Avenue that formerly housed a Bank of America data center, the project will consist of multiple seven-story buildings featuring a total of 1,150 apartments, 21,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and parking for 2,600 vehicles.
Like many of Palmer's other Downtown developments, Ferrante is a podium-type complex with an Italian Renaissance-inspired appearance and name. Promotional images show multiple courtyard and pool decks scattered across the site.
Construction of Ferrante is being broken into six overlapping phases, according to building permits issued by the City of Los Angeles. The first phase is expected to debut in 2022.
Though best known for his "Renaissance Collection" - a series of Italian-inspired projects totaling more than 5,000 residential units along the Harbor Freeway - Palmer has on occasion veered into different styles. His portfolio also includes Broadway Palace, a pair of brick-clad apartment buildings in the Fashion District, and a proposed 15-story tower with a modern exterior in Historic South-Central.
