The “Lucky” looks closer to completion, with the frame finished at 12803 Washington Boulevard. According to UrbanizeLA, the wood and concrete structure reached a milestone last week with the bones of the building all in place.
The five-story building, called the Lucky Apartments, is being developed as a joint venture between James Suhr & Associates and Tooley Interests. The podium-type structure will contain 37 apartments – including three for very low-income households – above 7,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
The modern low-rise structure, designed by Pleskow Architects, will offer a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings, some of which will feature private roof terraces and balconies. Renderings portray a contemporary five-story edifice.
James Suhr & Associates and Tooley Interests have named their project for Elias “Lucky” Baldwin, an entrepreneur and real estate developer whose 19th-century land holdings eventually evolved into communities including Arcadia, Monrovia, Sierra Madre, and Baldwin Hills. The former Baldwin Motel once stood at the site of the new apartment building.
Completion of the Lucky is anticipated in Fall 2019.
