Just north of Melrose Avenue in Beverly Grove, local developer Etco Homes is making progress on a trio of low-rise housing developments.

The first, located at 724 N. Croft Avenue, consists of a four-story building containing 28 residential units above a parking garage. 


Kevin Tsai Architecture designed the 80,000-square-foot development, called LTD at Melrose Place, which will include a landscaped central courtyard and exterior finishes such as limestone and reclaimed wood.

A sales website advertises a mix of two- and three-level townhomes at the property, offering one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans up to 2,762 square feet in size.

The second project, located two blocks west at 724-748 N. Sweetzer Avenue, is called MVMNT at Melrose Avenue.

The four-story edifice will feature 49 one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings up to 2,468 square feet in size.


Renderings depict a pair of contemporary low-rise structures.  City records indicate that the project is being designed by Orange County-based Hannouche and Kang Architects.

The final project, located at 714-718 N. Sweetzer Avenue, is a five-story apartment building featuring 26 apartments - including two very low-income units - above a parking garage.

Bucilla Group Architecture, a frequent collaborator with Etco, is designing the project.


In addition to its projects along Melrose Avenue, Etco Homes is also building new housing in Beverly Hills and Little Tokyo.
