A few blocks south of Wilshire Boulevard in Koreatown, Los Angeles-based developer Category Company has completed vertical construction of a new infill housing project at 726 S. Wilton Place.

The project, which replaced four rental units, consists of a six-story building that will feature 25 one-, two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom apartments atop street-level parking for 22 vehicles.

Designed by Bittoni Architects, the wood-frame building will be clad in a facade of white stucco accented with wood panels. Plans show a small recreation room and a courtyard at the building's second floor.

At the time the project began construction, completion of 726 Wilton was expected in early 2023.

The project is the latest in a long series of collaborations between Category Company, which specializes in co-living apartment complexes, and Bittoni, including similar developments in Larchmont, East Hollywood, Mar Vista, and Del Rey.

The site sits just two blocks south of Wilton's intersection with Wilshire Boulevard, where a larger mixed-use project featuring 228 apartments was completed by Jamison Services in mid-2021.
