Local developer 4Site Real Estate is betting on its own foresight with another project in the emerging Westlake area.

The firm is planning a 54-unit apartment complex at 1246 W. Court Street, two blocks from the Vista Hermosa Natural Park at the edge of Echo Park and Westlake, city documents show. The site comprises three parcels, one of which is currently occupied by a single-family home.

The multifamily project would rise to six stories, including two levels of parking.

Todd Wexman, 4Site’s CEO, could not immediately be reached for comment on the plans.

It’s not the company’s first foray into the neighborhood. Last June, 4Site began construction on a nearby 45-unit mixed-use residential and retail project at 2300 Beverly Boulevard. It’s also been active in Historic Filipinotown, where it built the 49-unit Echo Designer Loft Apartments at 1647 W. Temple Street.

Westlake’s would-be renaissance has gone into overdrive in recent months. West Coast developer CityView recently set its sights on the neighborhood with plans for a 243-unit mixed-use complex at at 1800 Beverly Boulevard and LaTerra Development wants to build 221 condo units at 235 North Hoover Street, according to public filings.
