Nearly one year after our last update, a mixed-use development form 4Site Real Estate and Tighe Architecture has entered the home stretch in Westlake.

Located at the northwest corner of 8th Street and Valencia Avenue, the new podium-type structure will contain a total of 60 residential units with ground-floor retail space and parking. The project site was previously developed with a small commercial building completed in the 1920s.

Tighe Architecture's design for the apartment building includes single-story structure facing 8th Street and a taller five-story mass oriented toward the rear of the site. The near-finished product closely resembles renderings depicting a blue-and-white structure with a podium-level amenity deck.

4Site Real Estate, which acquired the development site in 2019, is also working on several other projects with Tighe in Central Los Angeles, including a hotel-and-residential complex in Lincoln Heights and an 81-unit apartment building on San Fernando Road.
