Jamison unveils renderings for twin tower Koreatown resi complex
The glass and steel high-rise development will have 760 units, along with commercial space
Jamison, one of Koreatown’s most prolific developers, provided a first look at its glass and steel twin tower residential project, which would hold a combined 760 units.
Renderings submitted to the Wilshire Center-Koreatown Neighborhood Council and first reported by Urbanize show 28-story and 23-story buildings, both atop a four-story podium. The site is on 7th Street, between South Harvard Boulevard and South Kingsley Drive.
The complex will also have 6,400 square feet of commercial space, with parking for 1,922 vehicles. CallisonRTKL is the architect on the project, which Jamison first filed for in 2016.
Jamison built up a sizeable portfolio of office and parking garage properties in Koreatown and adjacent neighborhoods over the last three decades, and started converting and redeveloping them over the last several years following the recession. It now has more than a dozen development projects in the works around the city, many of them multifamily projects.
A year ago, the Los Angeles City Council approved the company’s 196-unit project planned for a parking lot behind the Wilshire Professional Building in Koreatown.
One of its most ambitious projects is a 41-story residential tower planned at 350 S. Figueroa Street in Downtown. The project calls for the partial demolition of a parking garage and retail concourse there. Jamison filed for the project in May. [Urbanize] — Dennis Lynch
