Rising up on the corner of Abbot Kinney and Venice Blvds is Abbot Lofts, a 22-unit rental building with parking and 5,000 square feet of retail. Project developer PATRICK Tooley fills us in: 22 units, ranging in size from 700-square foot one-bedrooms to 1,400-square foot two-bedrooms. (Two units are designated for low income residents.) Tooley said it’s a bit too early to estimate prices, but he expects units to start at $2,000 and top $4,000 for the top floor, view units. So start saving your clams for those clam views. Occupancy is expected in March.
