Work is underway on a $50-million apartment and retail complex on La Cienega Boulevard in the Beverly Grove neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Apartment developer NMS Properties is building the five-story project called NMS@La Cienega at the intersection of La Cienega and Westmount Drive, which is near Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
The complex is intended to appeal to renters in the medical, design, entertainment and retail industries, which are active nearby, NMS President Jim Andersen said.
The 125-unit building with underground parking and street-level shops is set to open in July 2013. It will have rooftop gardens and a floating plaster facade that peels away to reveal the corners.
