More than two years after our last update, the slow-moving Āto condominium complex continues to make progress across the street from the Weller Court shopping mall in Little Tokyo.

The project from Beverly Hills-based developer Etco Homes, which replaced a surface parking lot at 118 S. Astronaut Ellison S. Onizuka Street, stands nine stories in height and will feature 77 one- and two-bedroom condominiums at completion. Other components of the development include ground-floor retail space and a subterranean parking garage.

Bucilla Group Architecture designed the building, which is 120 feet in height and was built with a steel frame. Renderings depict a contemporary mid-rise structure, capped by a rooftop amenity deck. Other features include  swimming pool, a gym, and a barbeque area for use by residents.

According to a landing page on the Etco Homes website, the condos are priced starting in the high $500,000s.

The project is the last in a series of multifamily residential developments to arrive in Little Tokyo within the past decade, the bulk of which are located along 2nd Street between San Pedro and Main Streets.

Etco Homes, besides its Little Tokyo development, has built numerous condo complexes in the Beverly Grove neighborhood.
