Eastern Koreatown is getting a new 398-unit complex with 20,000 square feet of retail space at the ground level. The apartments, from developer Century West Partners, are under construction now at the southeast corner of Sixth Street and Virgil, just next to the Lafayette Recreation Center, says Urbanize LA. Currently a dusty, half-hearted parking lot, the parcel is one of many, many underutilized lots that stands to be gobbled up by Koreatown's building boom.
Designed by Killefer Flammang, the building will rise seven stories and be dotted with colorful exterior accents. Residents of the future complex will enjoy a 70-foot swimming pool, a two-story gym, four roof decks, and a yoga room, according to KFA's website. Century West Partners are keeping busy in Koreatown; they're also working on a massive, three-part luxury apartment project closer to the Wilshire/Vermont station.
