Two months after quietly starting work in Historic Filipinotown, Cityview has made it official: construction is underway at 1800 Beverly Boulevard.

The approximately 220,000-square-foot project, which spans the south side of Beverly between Bonnie Brae Street and Burlington Avenue, will consist of a six-story edifice featuring 243 residential units above 3,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for 292 vehicles.

“This project is a natural fit for Cityview, which centers around developing critical workforce housing near thriving job centers in close connection with the local community,” said Cityview chief executive officer Sean Burton in a statement. “The Los Angeles area is in tremendous need of additional workforce housing, and we are looking forward to bringing a unique property to the HiFi market that will benefit residents and the surrounding community for years to come.”  

Plans call for a mix of studio, one, and two-bedroom dwellings, including 21 units of very low-income affordable housing, which made the project eligible for density bonus incentives.

AC Martin is serving as executive architect for 1800 Beverly, which will be composed of wood-frame construction above a concrete base.  The contemporary low-rise building will include a clubhouse, a gym, a yoga studio, a dog run, and a courtyard, and a pool, among other amenities.

Cityview, which is also partnering with Clark Building Group and Nadia Geller Designs, expects to complete construction of 1800 Beverly in late 2023.

In addition to its Beverly Boulevard project, Cityview is also in the midst of construction at two similar mixed-use apartment buildings in Historic South-Central and Carthay.
