Two interesting new real estate projects in Mid-Wilshire

There are a couple of new real estate projects under construction in the Mid-Wilshire section of Los Angeles that deserve mention. The first is the Perino's Apartments project, located on Wilshire Boulevard, just east of Crenshaw (next door to the historic Los Altos Apartments). This building is going up on the site of the old Perino's Restaurant. There will be 47 apartment units, as well as commercial space for rent. The neon signage will be preserved, as well as some chandeliers and other architectural features. All in all, it's an attractive looking project that cleverly retains some of the spirit of what came before it. Situated next to the Los Altos, this will make for a nice block of apartments. For more information on Los Angeles apartments, take a look at Apartments for rent in Los Angeles.

Also of note in the Mid-Wilshire area is the new Mercury condo project, which is an office-building to condos conversion. Located at 3800 Wilshire Blvd (the southwest corner of Wilshire and Western), this 22-story early 1960s built hi-rise was the former headquarters of the Getty Oil company. Over 200 condo units are expected to come online. The game plan appears to be similar to the project at 1100 Wilshire, with upscale amenities in the units and a rooftop pool and barbeque area in the offering. The new residences will have terrific views.
