Six months after we last checked in, framing is complete at Community Corp. of Santa Monica's Pacific Landing apartments in Ocean Park.
The project, located on the former site of a long-vacant gas station at Lincoln Boulevard and Pacific Street, consists of a four-story building that will feature 37 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments atop 459 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a nine-car garage.
According to a 2019 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, the roughly $28.2-million apartment complex will cater to households earning between 30 and 80 percent of the area median income. Proposed rents would range from $587 to $1,880 per month.
Tighe Architecture is designing the Pacific Landing, which would include a T-shaped interior courtyard and a rooftop amenity deck. The building would greet Lincoln Boulevard with a "sculptural" exterior composed of metal panels and plaster.
At the time of Pacific Landing's groundbreaking shortly after the onset of the global pandemic, completion was expected in the Summer or Fall of 2021.
The project is one of a handful being built by Community Corp in its hometown, including two new projects in the Pico neighborhood, as well as under construction and proposed buildings in Mar Vista and Westchester.
