Fairfield Residential and Legendary Development have revealed new renderings for 950 E. Third Street, a $215-million mixed-use development which broke ground earlier this week in Downtown's booming Arts District.

The project, now rising from a six-acre site adjacent to the Southern California Institute of Architecture, will feature a series of five- and six-story buildigns containing 472 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and 22,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  Plans also call for numerous amenities throughout the development, including a two-story social and sweat lounges, a dog wash and play area, a rooftop deck, a courtyard and a rooftop deck.

Exterior designs from Kava Massih Architects utilize similar materials, tones and colors to those of existing buildings throughout the neighborhood.  Interior spaces will incorporate gallery stylings such as wood finishes and local art.

Partial completion of the project is expected by December 2017.
