Nearly one year after our last update, construction is in the home stretch for a a new apartment complex from Gemdale Corp. on the former site of Temple Community Hospital in Historic Filipinotown.

Carrier Johnson + Culture

The project, located at 235 N. Hoover Street, consists of an amorphous five-story structure which will feature 221 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above parking for 384 vehicles when completed.

In exchange for density bonus incentives permitting a larger building than would normally be allowed by zoning, Gemdale will be required to set aside 19 of the apartments as affordable housing at the very low-income level.

Carrier Johnson + Culture designed the apartment complex, which is now known as "Silva," according to a landing page on the Gemdale website. The near-finished product closely resembles the concept depicted in renderings. The site's prior name, Pinnacle 360, alluded to its hilltop location with an amenity deck and cantilevered balconies facing northwest providing view in all directions.

At the time the project, started construction, a Gemdale representative indicated that completion of the project is expected in late 2023.

Pinnacle 360 is an unexpected byproduct of a state law requiring the structural retrofit of all acute care hospitals for earthquake safety. The estimated $50-million cost of such an undertaking, combined with declining revenues, prompted the hospital's closure in 2014, with the property sold to Gemdale two years later.
