Project Description

Located in downtown Los Angeles, the New Pershing Apartments received LEED for Homes Gold Certification for utilizing innovative design to promote a healthy living environment for homeless and low-income residents. The building not only offers affordable housing, it also accommodates retail spaces and social service offices. While adding 69 new apartments, Killefer Flammang Architects painstakingly preserved the 1889 Victorian façade of the Pershing Hotel’s exterior which is the last Victorian era building left in downtown Los Angeles.

The complex boasts a spectacular rooftop deck with a large variety of custom-sized Bison Powder Coated Aluminum Cubes that are utilized as community gardens by interested residents. Complete with drainage holes and irrigation sleeves, the Bison Cubes make vegetation care easy and very popular among tenants. The planters and concrete pavers on this lower rooftop are supported by Bison Versadjust Pedestals.
