The wood frame of a new mixed-use building is now complete on Wilshire Boulevard in Brentwood.

Picasso Brentwood, located at 12027-12035 Wilshire Boulevard, is being developed by Metropolitan Pacific Real Estate Group.  The six-story building will feature 81 residential units - including a handful set aside as affordable housing - with 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and basement parking for 126 vehicles.

VTBS Architects is designing the podium-type structure, which is being built by Essey Construction.  A rendering portrays as a boxy structure featuring glass balconies and a roof-level amenity deck.

Completion of Picasso Brentwood is anticipated at the end of the first quarter of 2019.

Metropolitan Pacific is best known as the developer behind a proposed mixed-use project at the corner of 4th Street and Arizona Avenue in Santa Monica.
