733 S. Park View St. apartments
733 S Park View St, Los Angeles, CA 90057, USA
The project is located on the corner of Park View St. and 8th St. and spans almost the entire block to MacArthur Park.
The building schematic architecture is 6 wood stories of apartment units, arranged in a double courtyard scheme (2 main courtyards and 2 mini courtyards for 4 total), sitting on top of an exposed board-formed concrete podium of parking and retail and another semi-subterranean parking level.
The residential units are accessed from the exterior walkways that surround the open-air courtyards. 5 elevators and one stair core serve the residential stories. All of the units on the exterior facing the streets have balconies. There are two residential lobbies, one on Park View St. and one on 8th St., that provide entry points to the units. The building also has a fitness center, a community room, a leasing office, a work area/business center, and a lounge. 5,700 SF of retail space sits at the Park View / 8th St. corner at ground-level.
The wood residential levels have an exterior of white stucco that frames, and at the floor lines, meanders through the main exterior planes of the elevation and break up the corrugated aluminum siding. The first level of units begins at the second podium concrete level, where, at the 8th St. / Park View corner, the exterior plane of the builidng is in-set from the exterior plane of the wood residential floors above, exposing an array of circular columns holding those floors. The windows have aluminum frames painted black with 360 degree metal shrouds. The storefront windows at the retail space at the 8th St./Park View corner are angled in plan and non-orthoganol to the rest of the building. The unit balcony railings are glass and black-painted steel.
