Bernards Announces Completion of Multifamily Project, G12
Like its Recently Completed Sister Development OLiVE DTLA, G12 Brings New Apartments and Retail Options to Fast-Evolving, Vibrant South Park Community
LOS ANGELES, California – April 20, 2017 – Bernards, a leading commercial builder in Los Angeles, has completed the construction of G12, located at 1200 S. Grand Avenue, a major multifamily project in downtown Los Angeles’ increasingly popular South Park district.
Bernards was selected to build G12 based on the company’s track record as a specialist in successful mixed-use apartment and condominium projects. Vibrant South Park has become a magnet for young, millennial professionals. The evolving entertainment and tourist area includes attractions such as the LA Convention Center, Seventh Street Restaurant Row, the Grammy Museum, the vibrant L.A. Live entertainment complex, and Staples Center, home to the Los Angeles Lakers, Kings and Clippers¬.
G12 is adjacent to OLiVE DTLA, a “sister” project recently completed by Bernards for the same developer, The Wolff Company. TCA Architects designed both communities. “These two important development projects are vital in helping to meet the urgent need for additional housing in downtown Los Angeles,” said Carl Vizcarra, Project Executive with Bernards. “Every Bernards employee shares in the excitement of playing a role in the “building boom” that is transforming Downtown LA,” he added.
The seven-story, more than 456,000-square- foot, mixed-use G12 complex comprises 347 units and 19,000 square feet of ground floor retail and amenity space. Apartments range from studios and lofts to one- and two-bedroom units, built over two levels of subterranean parking. Interior finishes are superior in quality, on-trend and designed to set G12 apart. Across the alley to the east is OLiVE DTLA, a seven-story, mixed-use complex with 293 apartment units, 7,000 square feet of amenity space for residents, and approximately 17,300 square feet of ground floor retail.
Bernards, established more than 40 years ago, is one of the most active construction firms in the resurgence of Southern California’s multifamily development. The company is currently constructing Park Fifth, a seven-story project by MacFarlane Partners, which includes 313 apartments and 7,000 square feet of retail.
