In Westchester, the wood skeleton of a new mixed-use apartment complex is now complete at the intersection of Sepulveda Boulevard and Manchester Avenue.

Located on an L-shaped property which was previously home to a Grinder restaurant, the project consists of a six-story building which will feature 87 apartments above an 82-car garage and approximately 900 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

The project's developer, Los Angeles-based Caladan Investments, entitled the apartment complex using Transit Oriented Communities incentives to allow the construction of a larger building that allowed under zoning rules.  In exchange, eight of the apartments will be set aside as deed-restricted extremely low-income housing for a period of 55 years.

Lahmon Architects is designing the contemporary podium-type building.

The project is the latest in a recent series of new multifamily developments in the Westchester community, including an under-construction project from Sandstone Properties and a recently-completed apartment building by the Hanover Company.  San Diego-based Fairfield Residential has also entered the mix, with plans for a 362-unit complex next-door to Dinah’s restaurant.
