The first phase of the Avant mixed-user in South Park is just about done—pre-leasing is starting and move-ins begin next month. Developer Century West Partner is dropping 237 units and an undisclosed amount of retail in two buildings that front dead sections of Figueroa and Flower. (It would be especially exciting to see the moribund stretch of Flower south of Pico come alive; there's certainly potential. And plans for nearby projects too). A third building is under construction and will add 203 apartments and more shopping in about a year. Amenities include a fitness club, yoga studio, pool, and four live/work units. Studios, at 522 square feet, start at about $1,750; one- and two-bedrooms are also available, with the largest units topping out at $3,000.
