Two months after quietly starting work in Historic Filipinotown, Cityview has made it official: construction is underway at 1800 Beverly Boulevard.
The approximately 220,000-square-foot project, which spans the south side of Beverly between Bonnie Brae Street and Burlington Avenue, will consist of a six-story edifice featuring 243 residential units above 3,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for 292 vehicles.

“This project is a natural fit for Cityview, which centers around developing critical workforce housing near thriving job centers in close connection with the local community,” said Cityview chief executive officer Sean Burton in a statement. “The Los Angeles area is in tremendous need of additional workforce housing, and we are looking forward to bringing a unique property to the HiFi market that will benefit residents and the surrounding community for years to come.”
Plans call for a mix of studio, one, and two-bedroom dwellings, including 21 units of very low-income affordable housing, which made the project eligible for density bonus incentives.
AC Martin is serving as executive architect for 1800 Beverly, which will be composed of wood-frame construction above a concrete base. The contemporary low-rise building will include a clubhouse, a gym, a yoga studio, a dog run, and a courtyard, and a pool, among other amenities.
Cityview, which is also partnering with Clark Building Group and Nadia Geller Designs, expects to complete construction of 1800 Beverly in late 2023.
