Local development firm 4Site Real Estate has broken ground on a new apartment complex in the Westlake neighborhood.

The project, now rising on three parcels at 1246-1256 Court Street, will consist of a five-story structure containing 54 apartments and 96 parking spaces in a semi-subterranean garage.  Plans also call for open space amenities such as a swimming pool and a gym.

Tighe Architecture is designing the apartment building, which is to be clad with a mix of metal panels and concrete.

A timeline for the Court Street development has not been announced.

4Site and Tighe have worked on two similar multifamily residential projects on Temple Street and Beverly Boulevard.  Other collaborations include small lot subdivisions in Lincoln Heights and Echo Park.
