In a sign of the Covid times, Landmark Properties is revamping its student-focused apartment complex project near UCLA to create more space for tenants.

The firm is scheduled to present the new design to a local review board next week, according to Urbanize. The development site is at 10915 W. Strathmore Drive in Westwood.

In the redesign by Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects, the complex now includes elevation changes and setbacks to create terraces on the upper floors. A rendering shows a pool on one of those terraces.

The new proposal also cuts the unit count to 37 from 39, according to the report. As planned, units would be a mix of two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom apartments. Landmark is calling the seven-story property “The Mark at Los Angeles.”

Landmark proposed the first version in November with design by architecture firm Humphreys & Partners.

UCLA is developing several student housing properties nearby at an estimated cost of $900 million. The multi-year project includes 5,000 beds between a handful of buildings. The largest of those projects is under construction at 900 Weyburn Place, about a half mile from the Landmark site.

Also in the area, developers Ted Khalili and Eraj Basseri are working on a 64-unit apartment complex to replace an office building at 900 Hilgard Avenue.
