Jamison’s multi-family development binge shows no signs of stopping.

The Koreatown landlord has filed plans with the city for a 132-unit mixed-use development on the block bound by 6th Street, Manhattan Place, Western Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard.

The project, just the latest in a long line of ongoing developments by Jamison, calls for a five-story residential apartment building to be constructed over an existing four-level garage at 633 South Western Avenue. The resulting nine-story structure, which would be adjacent to Metro’s Wilshire/Western Station, would also include 900 square feet of retail space, according to planning documents.

The lot totals about 33,000 square feet, according to property records. Jamison already owns the site, but it wasn’t clear what it paid for it. 

Last week, prolific Jamison filed plans for two 23-story apartment buildings on Wilshire Boulevard that would contain 760 units and 6,359 square feet of commercial space. The company is also planning a 160-unit complex on a nearby site at 700 South Manhattan Place.

In addition to honing in on multifamily developments after decades as primarily a commercial landlord, Jamison has also begun creative office conversions on three of its properties, TRD previously reported, including the California Market Center in DTLA.
