Construction is underway for a mixed-use apartment building at the former site of a Grinder restaurant in Westchester.


The project, located on an L-shaped property at Sepulveda Boulevard and Manchester Avenue, will consist of a six-story edifice featuring 87 apartments above an 82-car garage and approximately 900 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Entitlements approved in 2019 by the City of Los Angeles use Transit Oriented Communities incentives to obtain relief from certain zoning restrictions.  In exchange, developer Caladan Investments would set aside eight apartments as deed-restricted extremely low-income housing for a period of 55 years.

Lahmon Architects is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which will be capped by rooftop decks overlooking Sepulveda and Manchester Avenues.

Completion of construction is anticipated in mid-2022, according to a representative of Caladan.

The project is the latest in a recent series of new multifamily developments in the Westchester community, including under construction projects from Sandstone Properties and the Hanover Company.
