LACMTA, developer complete Purple Line mixed-use project


Last week, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) and KOAR Wilshire Western L.L.C. marked the completion of a joint development project at the Wilshire/Western station on the Purple Line.

The $160 million development features a 22-story, contemporary glass-walled building that includes 186 residential units and a 40,000-square-foot retail plaza. The 2.6-acre development is the second mixed-use project to be built for the Koreatown/Wilshire Center community, which is located in a dense urban area with direct connections to the LACMTA subway system and future subway connections.
