In Westlake, another mixed-use development form 4Site Real Estate and Tighe Architecture is beginning to take shape.

The project, now under construction at the northwest corner of 8th Street and Valencia Avenue, is rising from an approximately 15,000-square-foot site that was previously improved with a 1920s brick commercial building.  The new building will contain a total of 60 residential units with ground-floor retail space and parking.

Tighe Architecture's design for the apartment complex calls for a single-story structure facing 8th Street, with a taller five-story mass pushed back toward the northern property line.  Renderings depict a blue-and-white structure with a podium-level amenity deck.

4Site Real Estate, which acquired the development site in 2019, is also developing several other multifamily and mixed-use projects in Central Los Angeles, including a hotel-and-residential complex in Lincoln Heights and an 81-unit apartment building on San Fernando Road.  Those projects are also designed by Tighe.

The 8th and Valencia site sits on the same block as Aria, a permanent supportive housing development recently built by Affirmed Housing Group.
