TOD Field Trip: Wilshire Vermont
Los Angeles, CA
The Wilshire Vermont station is another "true" transit-oriented development on 3.24 acres of Metro-owned property. The apartment complex include 449 apartments and 35,000 square-feet of ground floor retail surrounding the subway portal. A new middle school (Young Oak Kim Academy) was built on an adjacent 2.4 acre site and a bus layover facility is planned for the site of the existing UFCW Local 770 building.
Across Wilshire is The Vermont, a much less-modest transit-adjacent development by J.H. Snyder with twin towers of 22- and 28-stories containing 464 apartments and 40,000 square-feet of retail.
