A new tower crane at 6733 Sepulveda Boulevard is the most visible sign of progress yet at a new multifamily residential development now being built by Sandstone Properties.

The project, which replaced an office building across the street from Westchester's Playa District, will consist of a five-story edifice featuring 176 studio, one-, and two-bedroom rental apartments and parking for 245 vehicles.  Plans also call for a game room, a swimming pool, and a rooftop deck.

Designed by Johnson Fain, the podium-type building will have a facade of metal panels inlaid with LEDs.

The apartment complex follows a series of new housing developments near the Playa District, including new projects completed Hanover Company, Equity Residential, and Mill Creek Residential.  Most recently, San Diego-based Fairfield Residential recently entered the mix with plans for 360 apartments adjacent to Dinah's Restaurant.

Sandstone, in addition to 6733 Sepulveda, recently secured approvals to build a 175-room boutique hotel less than one mile northeast in Culver City.  The company's other projects include proposed apartment buildings in Canoga Park and Woodland Hills, as well as a hotel tower planned near the Los Angeles Convention Center.
