ENR Southern California Award of Merit goes to Wilshire & La Jolla Tower
We are excited to announce that Wilshire & Jolla Tower has won a 2023 ENR Southern California Award of Merit in the Residential/ Hospitality category! The ENR Awards program recognizes the best construction projects and companies that designed and built them.
Located at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and La Jolla, just south of the Hollywood Hills and east of Beverly Hills, the lens-like shape of this high-rise residential tower draws inspiration from the film and television industry of Los Angeles. The building brings together co-living apartment homes, 6,000 SF of retail, four levels of above-grade parking, and resident amenities on the sky deck and podium levels.
The result is a geometric manipulation expressed along the exterior building edge, which allows for idealized programmatic distribution throughout every unit from the top the bottom. The convex profile allows residents to easily access view corridors between the taller buildings along Wilshire Boulevard, and the malleable building edge opens Los Angeles to residents, and reframes one’s relationship to the metropolis.
Congrats to the project team, especially our partners at Gilbane and our clients at NMS Residential.
