The project will include 235 units and commercial space
In March, developer Suncoast Hill Street filed plans for a new mixed use development at the southern end of Downtown Los Angeles. Now, environmental documents published by the planning department reveal a few more details about the project.
Set to replace a trio of commercial buildings at 1340 South Hill Street, the development would rise seven stories and include 235 apartments and 9,198 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Twelve of the building’s units would be set aside for very low-income tenants and 47 would be designated as workforce housing. Eighty-five of the apartments would be studios, 106 would be one-bedroom units, and 44 would have two bedrooms.
As for parking? A subterranean lot would include 259 spaces for cars and 269 for bikes.
Designed by Humphreys & Partners Architects, the structure would have a fairly boxy design, with stripes of blue, white, and gray. Renderings of the project suggest it would be called “Peek,” with a bright red sign topping the building. Amenities for residents would include courtyard space, a swimming pool, and a sky deck with a club room.
According to plans, construction on the project would likely begin in 2018, with work wrapping up 25 months later.
Planned at the edge of Downtown’s rapidly developing South Park neighborhood, the complex would be located just a block from another seven-story mixed use project developed by Jade Enterprises.
