The Charles Co. has finally begun work on a mixed-use project at 9060 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, after having stalled for several years.

Once built, the Melrose Triangle will be a new buildings with 76 apartments. About 20 percent of those will be set aside for moderate- and low-income residents, according to Urbanize, which reported on the start of construction. The Studio One Eleven-designed Melrose Triangle will also include 137,000 square feet of office space, an 884-vehicle garage and 82,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.

Construction is scheduled for completion in 2020.

City officials first approved the project in 2014. In September, the developer reportedly notified tenants at the commercial building on-site that they would have to vacate.

Besides the typical delays, the project also faced a setback when the Los Angeles Conservancy sued West Hollywood for having approving it. The organization was protesting the proposed demolition of the Streamline Moderne building at 9080 Santa Monica Boulevard, which housed Jones Dog and Cat Hospital.
