A contemporary urban sanctuary for those who work and play in Downtown LA

Categories: Architecture + Interiors

Construction is underway on the mixed-use residential development at 1111 Wilshire Boulevard in Downtown Los Angeles, which is expected to be completed by mid 2013. Designed by Nadel Architects to highlight the neighborhood’s contemporary character, the $53 million complex consists of 210 units and all the recreational amenities necessary for urban living, including 7,000-square-feet of retail space on the ground floor. Located in the City West district just two blocks away from Los Angeles’ central business district, 1111 Wilshire, developed by Holland Partners Group, will provide a variety of multifamily options for the budding residential area.

“We designed 1111 Wilshire with the urban professional in mind,” said Dale Yonkin, project director at Nadel. “Our expertise in mixed-use projects allowed us to take advantage of the space to provide the highest quality of contemporary living. After precise adjustments of surrounding grades, we were able to achieve an additional story, allowing for ground level retail space while keeping six levels of residential units. The resulting seven stories will be an urban sanctuary for those who work and play downtown.” The building’s 210 rental units will consist of studios, junior-one bedrooms, one-bedrooms, plus a one-bedroom and den plan and two and three bedroom plans ranging in size from 427 to 1,316 square feet. Building amenities include three levels of subterranean parking, a large courtyard, and a roof deck with barbeques, picnic tables, seating areas and an outdoor pool and spa with vistas of the downtown skyline. Residents will also have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center and a business center that includes a private conference room. Due to the site’s location on the densely developed Wilshire Blvd., included in the design is access to the adjacent medical office building, retail parking and additional parking for the medical office building.

In addition to Dale Yonkin, the Nadel Architects 1111 Wilshire team includes Jack Bouvrie, design director; Afsaneh Riahi, associate AIA, and John Yang, design planners; and Rhoden Skyles, Project Manager. For more info on this project, visit their website.
