Residential, Urban Mixed-Use

Sapphire Apartments

Los Angeles, California

Sapphire, located in the City West neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles, is a residential mixed-use project comprising two buildings with connecting courtyards. Both buildings are lined with balconies to offer private open space to residents. Magnificent views of the city extend in each direction. The project will rise from an approximately two-acre site fronting 5th and 6th Streets between Lucas Avenue and Bixel Street.

The 215,880 SF South Building, located at 6th and Bixel Streets, is designed specifically for young working professionals, with 227 units, some of which will be designated live-work units. Amenities will include a courtyard with pool and BBQ areas, a 2,100 SF sky deck, a clubhouse, and a fitness center. The 132,550 SF North Building is positioned on a quieter neighborhood street, with 142 two- and three-bedroom units geared more towards families. The ground floor of the North Building is lined with mezzanine stoop-units with patios, which provide privacy and help integrate the development with the other buildings on the street.
