Over the past decade, Jamison Services has converted numerous mid-century office towers in Koreatown to housing. Now, the Los Angeles-based firm turns its sights to a different stretch of the Wilshire corridor.

Last month, Jamison filed an application with the Planning Department seeking approvals to convert the 17-story, 144,000-square-foot high-rise at 6380 Wilshire Boulevard into apartments. The proposed project would convert the interior of the 1963 building into 210 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, while also offering parking for 176 vehicles in an existing above-grade garage.

Next Architecture is designing the adaptive reuse project, which would retain the building's existing windows and glazing, while also adding new windows to portions of the above-grade parking garage, as well as a rooftop penthouse structure.

Approximately 27,000 square feet of amenities are proposed for use by residents, including a theater, co-working space, a fitness center, a club room, a yoga studio, a game room, a golf simulator, a sky lounge, and a rooftop pool deck.

The proposed project would rise two blocks to the east of Metro's upcoming Wilshire/Fairfax subway station, and in close proximity to a handful of new and proposed mixed-use and residential projects.

Across Wilshire Boulevard, the 16-story NMS La Jolla apartment tower opened for residents earlier this year, while an AC Hotel occupies the shell of a converted 11-story office building next door.

A short distance to the west at Wilshire's intersection with San Vicente Boulevard, upcoming projects include a proposed 20-story apartment tower and an approved 12-story medical office tower.
