West 27th Place is being developed by Symphony Development at the corner of Figueroa and West 27th Street, and will be seeking LEED-Platinum certification.
Los Angeles — Symphony Development is nearing completion for a new off-campus student housing project serving the University of Southern California (USC) community. West 27th Place will be a 161-unit project located at the intersection of Figueroa and West 27th streets. In addition to residential space, the community will have 10,000 square feet of street-level retail and restaurant space. Amenities will include a saltwater swimming pool, a fitness center and a computer lab.
West 27th Place will be seeking LEED-Plaintum certification, which, according to the developer, would make it one of only four buildings in the city to have the highest level of green certification and the only residential building. In addition, USC currently has no LEED-certified housing for students. Sustainable features of West 27th Place will include high-efficiency windows and insulation, preferred parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles, bicycle storage and co-generating elevators.
The community will open in May.
