The scaffolding has come down, and we can now compare South Park's G12 development to the glossy renderings first presented by developer Sonny Astani three years ago.

Located at the southeast corner of 12th Street and Grand Avenue, the project consists of a seven-story structure featuring featuring 347 residential units and 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  Other noteworthy features include fitness center, courtyards, a swimming pool and underground parking for 320 vehicles.

The nearly finished product closely resembles artistic renderings from TCA Architects.  A page from the TCA website notes that the building will include a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom dwellings.

Although Astani initiated the entilement process for G12 and its sister development on Olive Street, both projects were purchased by the Arizona-based Wolff Company.  The Olive Street building, which is being operated by UDR, Inc., has opened a pre-leasing office at 12th Street and Grand Avenue.

G12 is one of a handful of multifamily residential developments now rising along a brief stretch of Pico Boulevard, and sits directly across the from Mack Urban's upcoming 37-story tower at 1120 S. Grand Avenue.
