Set to be one of the newest mixed-use residential developments in Los Angeles, CA’s Koreatown, 700 Manhattan is well underway in construction and just completed the basement structure and is beginning to rise above grade. The seven-story, mixed-use-complex will contain 160 residential units, more than 10,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and several amenities including a dog run, and pool/spa deck. Located between Manhattan Place and Western Avenue and 7th Street, the building contains two levels of below grade parking, ground floor retail, parking spaces, and second floor amenity space. Then floors 3 through 7 contain residential units.
Development of the 700 Manhattan mixed-use complex is being performed as a tremendous collaborative effort between Jamison Properties, GMP Architects, Nishkian Chamberlain Structural Engineers and Wilshire Construction.
The structure consists of a cast-in-place concrete system up to the third-floor podium. Floor slabs consist of flat plate, two-way concrete slabs spanning between concrete columns and/or bearing walls. The lateral force resisting system in the building consists of special reinforced concrete shear walls up to the third-floor podium. For levels 3 to 7, the building is of wood framed construction with plywood shear walls as the lateral force resisting system.
Residential development continues in Koreatown and throughout Los Angeles. We appreciate the opportunity to be part of the team on this significant development. The Nishkian firms have extensive experience with multi-family construction development projects.
