Across the street from Universal Studios in Universal City, CA, the infill site accommodates a transit-oriented development within a 1/4-mile walk of a Metro subway station with a 20-minute ride to downtown Los Angeles.
The apartment homes are housed in a single building that wraps around a wedge shaped courtyard. The intricate 4-story building features an interior corridor design with a north-south orientation optimizing sunlight in the central courtyard with a swimming pool. Residents benefit from two levels of subterranean parking, at-grade guest parking and a row of private garages along the west property line which make use of an easement for the subway line, and act as a buffer to adjacent single-family houses.
