CIM Group Completes Construction of Elevate - Apartment Residences in West Los Angeles


LOS ANGELES--CIM Group today announced construction completion of Elevate, a four-story 147-unit apartment and retail building located at 1515 S. Granville Avenue in West Los Angeles. Elevate brings new residences to this prominent location on Santa Monica Boulevard, one of the region’s major east-west transportation corridors, between S. Westgate Avenue and Granville Avenue.

The building features a modern architectural design with modulated roof heights and façade features. Apartments range from studios, one- and two-bedroom floorplans to three live/work spaces. Residents will enjoy multiple indoor and outdoor gathering areas including a clubhouse and game room, pool deck, outdoor terraces and lounge as well as a gym and co-working space. Community-serving retail including a newly-opened Target, a Healthy Spot pet store, and an AKT Fitness studio occupy a significant portion of the approximately 42,000-square-foot ground floor space. Subterranean parking serves the residents and retailers.

Elevate is the second completed phase of a multi-phased development program for the 2.6-acre property of former auto dealerships fronting Santa Monica Boulevard and three adjacent residential parcels, which upon completion of the third phase, will bring a total of 338 apartment units, 32 of which are designated affordable, and a total of approximately 58,300 square feet of retail space having approximately 300 lineal feet fronting Santa Monica Boulevard.

An earlier phase of the development brought three smaller, four-story buildings, for a total of 37 apartment homes on parcels to the south of the two properties fronting Santa Monica Boulevard. These contemporary buildings offer one-, two- and three-bedroom residences, and feature a landscaped courtyard and a rooftop lounge with a fireplace and sundeck. The first phase was completed in 2017 and the buildings are fully leased.

CIM is underway on the construction of the third and final phase of the development, the adjacent 154-unit, five-story apartment building and approximately 16,600 square feet of ground floor retail at 1500 S. Granville Avenue. The building is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2020.
