Trammell Crow Commences Construction on 21-story Office Tower
Trammell Crow Company and High Street Residential, in a public-private partnership with the County of Los Angeles and Meta Housing Corp., commenced construction on Los Angeles’s Vermont Corridor.

It will also encompass an adaptive reuse of an existing office building into 172 residential units with 4,700 square feet of ground floor retail; and a 72-unit senior affordable housing complex with a 13,000-square-foot YMCA community center.
The multiple-phased, transit-oriented development is located within Koreatown on Vermont Avenue, between 4th and 6th Streets, near Metro Red and Purple subway lines. The office building is expected to deliver Q4 2021, while development is expected to commence on the senior housing by mid-2019, and the 12-story building conversion to multifamily is expected to begin in late 2021.
