Design Fact Sheet: 3980 Wilshire Boulevard

August 7, 2017

3980 Wilshire Boulevard is an iconic new mixed-use building designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning and developed by Jamison Realty Inc. Representing the next wave of design-forward residences in Los Angeles’ Koreatown neighborhood, 3980 Wilshire combines 228 residential units with resort-style amenities and approximately 14,000 (13,789) square feet of retail wrapping the base of the building.

“With a sleek profile and curved-roofline, the building consciously plays with the Art Deco legacy of Wilshire Boulevard,” says KTGY Executive Director, Design, Keith McCloskey, LEED AP. “It creates a stylish impression at the westerly gateway to Koreatown where its curved face addresses the curved corner of Wilshire and Wilton Place. The design incorporates multiple amenities – inside and out – further allowing the building to take the appearance of a classic hotel.”
