3980 Wilshire Boulevard – Renderings Galore for Proposed Koreatown Development
July 13, 2016
Later this week, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission will review a proposal for a new mixed-use development on the western edge of Koreatown.
The project from local real estate firm Jamison Services would rise from a one-acre property at 3980 Wilshire Boulevard, replacing a surface parking lot and a series of low-rise buildings. Plans call for the construction of a seven-story building which would feature 228 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, approximately 17,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking accommodations for 340 vehicles and 267 bicycles.
Like similar developments now rising along Wilshire Boulevard, Jamison’s project would offer an array of residential amenities, including a rooftop deck, a courtyard, a fitness room and a swimming pool.
The contemporary building, designed by KTGY Group, with exterior finishes such as perforated metal screens, aluminum and exterior cement plaster.
Construction of 3980 Wilshire would be contingent on a number of discretionary approvals from the City of Los Angeles, including a zone change and a site plan review.
A timeline and budget for the project are currently unclear.
