Carmel Partners’ Cumulus District Nears Completion on Westside

San Francisco-based Carmel Partners continues to make progress toward the delivery of Cumulus District, a 11-acre transit-oriented, living and retail destination in Los Angeles. The development includes a 31-story high-rise tower with 300 apartments that range from studios to penthouse residences, as well as a seven-story mid-rise building with 910 apartments.

The project includes Zocalo, a one-acre central park between the two residential buildings, as well as numerous clubhouses, co-working spaces, spas and outdoor pools, a sky deck and 24-hour fitness center. There are entertainment and media rooms, a pet run and grooming areas and private underground parking. Retail components include a flagship Whole Foods grocery store, and 50,000 square-feet of retail space envisioned for restaurants, bars, boutiques, fitness studios and daily conveniences.

The project at 3333 S. La Cienega and Jefferson boulevards is near an Expo Line light rail stop. Tower residential leasing is anticipated to begin June 2020 with move-ins expected in fall. CBRE’s Timothy L. Bower and Zachary Card are leading the retail leasing efforts for Cumulus.
