New Developments Transforming Sawtelle

September 22, 2015

The following article was co-authored by Steven Sharp, editor of the Urbanize LA blog.  For more information on the latest Los Angeles urban development projects, visit Urbanize.LA and follow Urbanize LA on twitter @ubranizela.

Traveling north on Sawtelle Boulevard in the Sawtelle Japantown, you may notice a new purple and grey apartment complex and several other lots rife with construction activity.  The majority of these new developments come from Wellesley Manor, a real estate firm whose other holdings in the neighborhood include SoHo Square – a 94-unit mixed-use building built in 2006 – and St. John’s Wood – a 55-unit condominium complex built in 2009.

Wellesley Manor Projects

Wellesley Manor has the following projects in the pipeline for Sawtelle:

Camden Town 1750 Sawtelle

Camden Town

Camden Town, located at 1750 Sawtelle Boulevard, consists of 15 residential units which shall be rented out as apartments.  Final touches are currently being applied to the four-story structure, which will open to the public soon.

The building was designed by architect Warren Techentin, whose prior work includes the adjacent SoHo Square development at 1700 Sawtelle Boulevard.

Notting Hill Apartments

The Notting Hill Apartments, currently under construction at 1900 Sawtelle Boulevard, will consist of a low-rise edifice featuring 52 residential units.  The building, which is rising on the former site of the Harada Nursery, will include nine live-work apartments on its ground floor and five dwellings reserved for low-income households.

Designs from Newport Beach-based MJS Design Group call for a five-story structure featuring multiple outdoor gathering spaces and a three-level underground garage with parking accommodations for up to 78 vehicles.

Regents Park

Across the street from the Notting Hill development, a century-old bungalow was recently demolished to make way for Regents Park, a five-story structure which would include 25 residential units, 650 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a large parking garage.

Like Camden Town, the proposed low-rise building is being designed by architect Warren Techentin.

Other Developement Projects

In addition to various residential complexes from Wellesley Manor, the following projects are currently planned or in development by different entities:

Construction began earlier this year for a new three-story apartment building at 1831 Sawtelle Boulevard.  According to information from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, the low-rise building will include 30 residential units and a two-level basement garage.

City records list the project’s architect as the Glendale-based firm Uriu & Associates.

Construction permits are currently in the works for another multi-family residential building on an adjacent property at 1837 Sawtelle Boulevard.  The project, which is being designed by architect David Forbes Hibbert, would consist of a four-story building featuring 19 residential units and a below-grade parking garage.  Two units would be reserved for very-low income households.

The largest project currently planned for the neighborhood is slated for the current home of the Westside Family YMCA at 1947 Sawtelle Boulevard.  The project, which is being developed by California Landmark Group, would consist of 73 residential units and 7,700 square feet of ground-level commercial space.

Designs from Rios Clementi Hale Studios call for a modern five-story structure flanked by cherry blossom trees.  The building’s height would pare down to two-story townhomes as it approaches the adjacent single-family zone to the west.

Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2016.

The following article was co-authored by Steven Sharp, editor of the Urbanize LA blog.  For more information on the latest Los Angeles urban development projects, visit Urbanize.LA and follow Urbanize LA on twitter @ubranizela.

CA Landmark Group (CLG), a Los Angeles-based real estate developer, has purchased the Westside Family YMCA at 1947 Sawtelle Boulevard with the intention of building a residential-retail complex on the site.  Plans filed with Department of City Planning call for a five-story structure featuring 73 residential units and 7,700 square feet of ground floor commercial space.  The YMCA will relocate to a new 60,000-square-foot facility near the University High School campus.

CLG’s mixed-use plan on Sawtelle is consistent with current zoning and will bring new rental housing, including below-market affordable units to West Los Angeles.  The company has more than 25 years of development experience on the Westside.  Since submitting plans to the city last year, CLG has been reached out to neighbors seeking feedback on the project through an ongoing series of monthly mixers.

The Sawtelle project is being designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios with a contemporary architectural theme similar to buildings in modern day Tokyo.  Plans call for a plaza at the corner of Sawtelle and La Grange Avenue, flanked by cherry blossom trees.  The building’s height profile will gradually pare down to a series of two-story townhomes as it approaches the adjacent single-family zone to the west.

Construction of the residential-retail complex is anticipated to begin in mid-2016, with delivery tentatively scheduled for one year afterwards.
