Developers AMCAL Equities announced today that construction has begun on The Clarendon, a new apartment complex in Woodland Hills, just a block northeast of Topanga Canyon and Ventura boulevards, and right in the crook of the 101 freeway.
The five-story building will hold 335 apartments, running from studios up to three-bedrooms; 26 of the units will be rented to tenants using Section 8 vouchers.
The 4.3-acre complex, designed by Architects Orange, will be served by a six-level parking structure that will include 28 parking spaces for electric vehicle charging stations.
Another eco-friendly addition to the project are the trellis solar panels on the roof, which shade the top of the parking garage and offset a portion of common area energy costs, says a release from the developer.
Those common areas are plentiful. The Clarendon will offer more than one acre of outdoor amenities including a pool and spa, a barbecue area, an approximately 3,700-square-foot dog area, and a half basketball court. Inside, residents can use the gym or the business center, which will include “work-ready office spaces for non-commuting, live/work residents.”
AMCAL expects the project to be complete in August 2019.
The Clarendon replaced the old Woodland Hills Post Office location, which closed at the end of May.
Correction: An earlier version of this post erroneously stated that the project was located near Topanga Canyon and Laurel Canyon boulevards. It is located near Topanga Canyon and Ventura boulevards.
