Nova on Wilshire, a new multifamily landmark designed by KTGY, has opened in the heart of Los Angeles. The mixed-use building is developed by Jamison Properties, LP, representing the next wave of design-forward residences in Los Angeles’ Koreatown neighborhood.
At 3980 Wilshire, the iconic structure combines 228 apartment homes with resort-style amenities and approximately 15,000 (14,983) square feet of retail wrapping the base of the building.
The retail component incorporates the prior tenant, Tom n Tom’s coffee house (a Koreatown institution) into the new development, creating a social hub at Wilshire and Wilton. The courtyard area incorporates fitness center, pool, spa and gazebo lounges.
A second meditative courtyard of approximately 1,500 square feet is set off from the main pool-focused courtyard. The rooftop lounge features an entertaining kitchen, fire pits and comfortable spaces with views of West L.A. and the Hollywood Hills.
Ground-level co-working space offers a beautiful and functional place to work and collaborate. “With a dynamic curved building form, the building consciously plays with the Art Deco legacy of Wilshire Boulevard,” said KTGY Associate Principal, Keith McCloskey, LEED AP.
“It creates a bold presence at the westerly gateway to Koreatown where its curved facade responds to the geometry of Wilshire and Wilton Place. The design incorporates multiple indoor and outdoor amenities, affording opportunities for residents to live well in a classic hospitality-like setting.” Source by KTGY.
