After a period of dormancy, work is once again underway for the second half of developer Geoff Palmer's massive Ferrante apartment complex next to the I-110 Freeway in Downtown Los Angeles.

The project, which sits on a 10-acre property at Temple Street and Beaudry Avenue, calls for the construction of seven-story buildings containing a combined sum of 1,150 apartments, 21,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and parking for 2,600 vehicles.

The design language of phase two of Ferrante will be similar to the already-complete building, which sits at the corner of Temple and Beaudry. Plans call for an Italian Renaissance-inspired appearance, with an interior feature amenities such as a courtyard and pool decks scattered across the site.

Construction of Ferrante is being broken into six overlapping phases, according to building permits issued by the City of Los Angeles. The first phase of the complex was completed in 2022.

Palmer is best known for his "Renaissance Collection," which now accounts for more than 5,000 residential units on sites lining Harbor Freeway. However, the Beverly Hills-based developer has on occasion veered into different styles, including projects such as Broadway Palace, a pair of brick-clad apartment buildings in the Fashion District, and a proposed 15-story tower with a modern exterior in Historic South-Central.
