A new five-story residential development is headed for Sawtelle—and it will have a fancy automated parking garage.
Set to rise on the northwest corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Barrington Avenue, the project will include 53 apartments and six live-work townhomes, along with 1,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor.
Five of the apartments will be set aside for very low-income residents (those making under half the median income in the area).
Designed by R&A Architecture + Design and developed by Markwood Enterprises, the structure will have a contemporary aesthetic with elements of wood, metal, and glass, along with hanging vines draped from upper level trellises and overhangs.
Residents will have access to a shared rooftop deck, open-air terrace, central courtyard, and an amenity room.
Plans for the project filed last year indicate that it will take about 13 months to construct and should be ready to open by the end of 2018.
