A new residential building has replaced a Westlake parking lot at the corner of Coronado and Wilshire with 152 apartments.

The project, developed by the New York-based Somerset Group, is slated to welcome its first residents in January, and began pre-leasing this month.

The building’s design by DFH Architects is intended as “an homage to the surrounding historical community with hints of Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, and Spanish Revival architecture.”

Called Wilco—“not the band,” the complex’s website notes—the building holds a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. All units feature keyless entry, in-unit stackable laundry machines, stainless steel appliances, and quartz counters. The average unit is 640 square feet.

The rents for studio apartments at Wilco start at $1,845. One-bedroom units start at $2,195, and two-bedroom apartments rent from $2,825.

Resident amenities include a music room, a recording studio, rooftop deck, outdoor cinema, a gym, and a pool.

The building’s lobby “will feature permanent murals and a rotating gallery showcasing art from the community, with an emphasis on providing a platform for local and burgeoning artists,” says a release from the developer. At the ground floor, Wilco also holds 7,000 square feet of space for shops and restaurants that is for rent now.
