- Feb 14, 2017
Los Angeles—KFA announced the completion of the Astani Enterprises-developed Wilshire Valencia project at 1515 Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles. The six-story, 218-unit community comprises studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments, some of which are affordable, totaling 300,000 square feet.
In-unit features include nine-foot ceilings, built-in cabinetry, generous windows, private balconies and washers and dryers. Residents have access to amenities such as 20,000 square feet of recreation space; two landscaped courtyards; outdoor lounge spaces; a pool; a fitness center; an outdoor basketball court; exterior game lounge; an underground parking garage and a bike storage room. The property also offers 4,000 square feet of retail space suitable for restaurants and shopping, along with the resident entry lobby and leasing center.
“KFA believes that high-quality, urban infill projects like the Wilshire Valencia are the optimal solution to the challenge of providing hip, attractive living spaces for young professionals seeking to live in the urban center,” said Laura Highcove, AIA, KFA associate & project manager. “Creative solutions for density combined with a great location is essential to smart growth.”
The building’s architectural design includes an emphasis on using contrasting materials such as natural stone tile and smooth plaster finishes with wood, aluminum and glass accents. The facade features a contrasting pattern of extruded rectilinear elements that extend along the length of the elevations and the massing is recessed at various points for balcony space. The property offers views of the Hollywood Hills, the Mid-Wilshire district and downtown Los Angeles.
