The 160-unit, luxury apartment building project in Koreatown reached the roof structure essentially completing the main structural work on the project. Work began in construction in 2017 and is now installing finishes.
Scaffolding rises along the northern elevation of the project.
The seven-story, mixed-use complex will contain residential units above more than 10,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space. It will also include 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 and parking spaces, and second floor amenity space. Then floors 3 through 7 will contain residential units.
The Type III modified wood-framed building sits above a Type I structure consisting 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 acting as the vertical lateral force resisting system.
