City West Project With 640 Units to Break Ground in 2014

Tom Warren, chief operating officer of development at Holland Partner inside the recently opened 1111 Wilshire. Warren said the company will break ground in 2014 on a new 640-unit project in City West. 

 DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - Things are going to get more crowded in City West next year. After recently completing a $60 million 210-unit apartment complex called 1111 Wilshire, Vancouver, Wash.-based developer Holland Partner Group is planning to break ground on another residential project.

Tom Warren, chief operating officer of development at Holland Partner, said work will begin next year on a $125 million complex with 600 apartments on a block bounded by Wilshire Boulevard, Lucas Avenue and Bixel and Sixth streets.

The developer purchased the property from Good Samaritan Hospital in 2007. Plans call for transforming a currently vacant 1923 medical office building at Sixth and Lucas into 42 residential units, and then building another structure with 600 apartments, Warren said.

The project has been in the works for years but was delayed due to the recession and issues with the California Environmental Quality Act. Holland Partner also created the 208-unit GLO apartment complex on Wilshire Boulevard in City West.
