Co-living units aren’t the only change maybe coming to Rossmore Avenue. Construction is expected to start this spring on a twisting, 11-story, mid-rise apartment building.

Located at 617 N. Rossmore Ave., plans for the 120-foot-tall modern residential tower in Hancock Park include razing an existing two-story structure to make way for the new building with a curling design, which takes inspiration from the curve in Rossmore, just south of Melrose. The result is an optical illusion: from one direction, the top appears thinner than the bottom, while from another direction, the opposite appears true.

While the northern stretch of Rossmore has no height limits, and while additional density theoretically would be permitted beyond the planned 14 units, the parking requirements for a larger project would require costly below-grade construction. So, it’s to be 14 units.

The project is designed by Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects and developed by Metros Capital.
