Checking in on the LC Apartments

In Spring 2013, the West LA-based California Landmark Group broke ground on the LC, an 84-unit mixed-use development at the northern end of Larchmont Boulevard.  Fast forward to Winter 2014, and the $40 million development now rises four stories above Melrose Avenue, eradicating what was formerly a vacant lot.  With just under 3,500 square feet of ground floor commercial space, the LC adds more feet on the ground in an already-walkable section of the Hollywood neighborhood.  A variety of jobs and activity centers are located nearby, including the historic Paramount Pictures campus and busy Hollywood Boulevard.  Residential amenities will include a rooftop deck, media room, and a full service gym.  The Larchmont Buzz reports that the PK Architects designed project's Melrose facade will be clad with anondized aluminum paneling.  As an added benefit, California Landmark has also supplied $100,000 for streetscape improvements around the property.  This includes new trees along Larchmont, Melrose and El Centro, as well as the potential for a landscaped plaza in front of the building.


  1. Looks like some good, solid infill and thankfully this is not taking over a whole city block downtown.
