We mentioned on Friday that Century West Partners, the people behind South Park's under-construction Avant apartments, are tearing up the town, with projects eastish (Downtown's Avant), centralish (K2 LA in Koreatown), and west: they broke ground last week on The Gibson, a 106-unit apartment project at Seventh and Arizona (not too terribly far from the Expo Line phase two terminus). The project is made up of two five-story buildings with 10,000 square feet of retail (unlike the retail-less Ktown project), 142 parking spaces, bike storage, a fitness center, and a pool. The Gibson is designed by David Forbes Hibbert, same as Century West's K2 LA in Ktown. The project is set to finish up in late summer 2013.
