Construction is underway for another multifamily residential development near the border between Westlake and Koreatown.

The new project, located at 2841-2853 W. Leeward Avenue, will consist of a six-story building featuring 46 residential units above a two-level basement parking garage.

Lahmon Architects is designing the low-rise development, which is inspired by traditional Korean art and culture.  Its facade will employ light and dark materials to create the illusion of depth on a nearly flat service.  A rooftop deck will cap the building.

A short walk west along Leeward Avenue, developer Mega Home, LLC completed work on an 80-unit condo complex earlier this year.

Two blocks south on Francis Avenue, work is underway on a similar six-story building.

Two blocks north, a $300-million apartment tower is now rising at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Hoover Street.
