Palisades, a Los Angeles real estate developer, on Wednesday will celebrate the groundbreaking of a 53-unit apartment building at 1250 N. Fairfax Ave.
The project lies on the east side of Fairfax just south of Fountain Avenue. The project, long in the making, replaces four two-story apartment buildings that currently are boarded up and empty.
The project will include 12 affordable units for low and moderate-income residents. The five-story development, slated for completion in 2020, will include four connected buildings organized around a central courtyard. The contemporary take on the traditional courtyard style was designed by R&A Architecture + Design and is inspired by the works of famed Southern California architect Irving Gill.
The groundbreaking ceremony, to which West Hollywood city officials are invited, will begin t 9:15 a.m. with remarks at 9:30 a.m.
