DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – Residential development is booming across Downtown Los Angeles, but there’s nowhere quite like the stretch of Olympic Boulevard between Grand Avenue and Hill Street, where about 1,000 units, divided between four complexes, have been under construction.
Now, the first batch of apartments has arrived, thanks to Houston-based developer Hanover Company. Simply titled Hanover South Park, the building at 939 S. Hill St. brings 284 apartments to a formerly quiet corner. Two additional projects from the company are scheduled to open early next year.
The seven-story structure has a clean exterior design from architecture firm TCA, and melds simply painted stucco, warm stone surfaces and flashes of metallic paneling. Steel-framed glass balconies poke out over the street. Landscaping and fresh sidewalks line the streetscape.
