Solomon Cordwell Buenz’s (SCB) portfolio of work in Los Angeles continues to grow with three new projects: 520 Mateo, 222 West 2nd Street, and ARQ at Cumulus. Together, these projects introduce 1500 new units into the expanding LA residential market.
As the first high-rise in the city’s historic Arts District, 520 Mateo is a contemporary interpretation of the surrounding urban fabric. Currently under construction, the mixed-use development includes a 35-story residential tower; a 105,000-square-foot creative office building; and a 55,000-square-foot urban paseo that features active retail, outdoor seating, and public art.
Recently approved by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission, the design for 222 West 2nd Street demonstrates a thoughtful approach to street presence and the pedestrian experience. Located in the city’s Theater District, the full block project integrates 700 residential units with retail and a new Metro Station.
ARQ at Cumulus is a 30-story luxury apartment tower in Culver City. Nearing completion, the 300-unit tower is part of a larger transit-oriented development located at the Expo Line Jefferson/La Cienega station. ARQ is the first high-rise, high-density urban residential experience in the area, offering residents sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills, downtown Los Angeles, and the Pacific Ocean.
