Seven months after our last update, wood framing is rising quickly at the site of a new mixed-use apartment complex near Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown.

The project at 200 W. Mesnager Avenue, which is being developed by Portland-based NBP Capital, will eventually consist of six- and seven-story buildings featuring a total of 280 apartments above 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and offices space. Plans also call for 300 parking stalls on two subterranean levels.

GBD Architects is designing the mixed-use complex, which is depicted in renderings as a pair of contemporary podium-type building which centered on large courtyard space. Other planned amenities include a yoga studio, a dog park, and a swimming pool.

Completion of 200 Mesnager is expected in 2024.

The project follows on the heels of the Llewelyn, a 318-unit apartment complex which recently opened just south of the park. Several other mixed-income housing and offices are slated for properties bordering the Mesnager site, including a larger 376-unit live/work development pitched for Main Street.

To the west, Chinatown could also see the construction of new high-rise buildings on properties at 942 North Broadway and on a narrow strip of land overlooking L.A. State Historic Park.
