One of the sleepier sections of Wilshire Boulevcard may become a little less so, as development begins spreading east from the Miracle Mile and west from Koreatown. The surface parking lot at the southeast corner of Wilshire and Crenshaw Boulevard is slated for a 30-unit apartment building. Residential units would rise within a four-story structure, served by a 67-vehicle parking garage. Construction equipment will also be on site at a neighboring parcel over the next several years, albeit for a very different type of project.
Last week, Alliance Residential announced the opening of Broadstone Candara, a 103-unit luxury apartment complex in Hancock Park. The project, located at 738 Wilcox Avenue, is situated close to Larchmont Village, the Wilshire Country Club, Melrose Avenue and Paramount Studios. Designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style by Santa Monica’s DFH Architects, Broadstone Candara is reminiscent of the distinguished residences of Hancock Park. The complex’s Moorish-inspired interior design complements the Spanish-themed exterior architecture with amenities like that of a boutique hotel.
