If you’re hoping to have your pick of a wide selection of never-been-lived-in apartments, an under-construction rental community with a 2021 occupancy date is the way to go. There are a number of new projects in Los Angeles that are pre-leasing or accepting registrations, allowing future tenants to reserve a coveted corner unit or choose their preferred color scheme. Here, we’ve rounded up four new apartment buildings that will be move-in ready by next year.
Developer: High Street Residential
Priced from: $2,125
Occupancy: February, 2021
Located at the nexus of Chinatown and Mission Junction, Llewellyn is a pet-friendly apartment complex featuring studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floorplans. Units will be available for move-in by February, allowing you to start the year off in style — expect large windows, in-suite laundry, GE stainless steel kitchen appliances, peninsula quartz countertops, and private balconies or patios (as per plan). The building is across the street from Los Angeles State Historic Park, a new greenspace that’s perfect for walking the dog, enjoying an afternoon picnic, or squeezing in an outdoor workout.
