In September 2016, multifamily developer Carmel Partners dropped $111 million for an 11-acre site near the Expo Line’s La Cienega/Jefferson station in the West Adams neighborhood.

Carmel’s master plan for the site, a 1,210-unit mega complex dubbed Cumulus, has come into sharper focus after it just released the latest renderings of the expansive project, Urbanize reported.

Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and TCA Architects, the 2 million-square-foot mixed-use development will consist of a 910-unit residential tower and a seven-story apartment with 300 units.

An additional 100,000 square feet will be dedicated for retail space, and another 3,600 square feet set aside for co-working purposes.

Amenities will include outdoor common areas, a parking podium, 24-hour concierge service, fitness center with spin and yoga rooms, ground-floor shops and restaurants. Residents will also have access to a rooftop swimming pool and deck, found on a sixth-floor amenity deck, according to the firm’s website.

The project has drawn criticism from neighborhood residents for its grandiose scale and potential for gentrification. Local groups such as the Crenshaw Subway Coalition and the Friends of the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative even filed a lawsuit against the city for approving the project despite zoning and height restrictions.

The San Francisco-based developer has a few other significant projects in the pipeline for the region. It’s developing a 600-unit condo project in the Arts District, as well as a 700-unit residential complex in Downtown L.A. [Urbanize] — Natalie Hoberman
