High Street Residential, the residential subsidiary of Trammell Crow Company, along with its partner, Principal Real Estate Investors, officially welcomes residents to Llewellyn, the newest apartment complex to open in Los Angeles. The 318-unit multifamily development on the eastern edge of Los Angeles’ Chinatown neighborhood features generous two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio apartments with an enviable portfolio of amenities tailored to the evolving needs of today’s urban dwellers. Llewellyn successfully pre-leased a healthy 14% of units prior to opening, suggesting an early interest in the desirable location near downtown Los Angeles.

Llewellyn spans a full city block that borders Los Angeles State Historic Park, a celebrated 32-acre recreational area that opened in 2017. The building’s majority two-bedroom unit mix caters to professionals and creatives who work remotely and use a private home office, renters who share the cost of living with a roommate, and young families. Amenities accommodate both professional and leisure pursuits and include a 1,700-square-foot co-lab workspace with breakout meetings rooms; a soundproof “jam” room in which to record or rehearse; an indoor/outdoor double-height fitness center that rivals any private fitness training center; a dog spa; and a bike service room.

The development also houses 37,000 square feet of outdoor amenity space including two expansive rooftop decks with mountain and cityscape views; three landscaped communal courtyards; a heated pool and spa; multiple entertaining spaces with fire pits and barbecue grills; and a children’s play area. Llewellyn additionally offers a tailored version of Hello Alfred, an award-winning app that helps residents conveniently coordinate deliveries, dry cleaning, dog walking and other services on-demand. The building features a hospital-grade MERV-15 air filtration system, anti-microbial furniture coverings, thoughtfully spaced seating arrangements in common areas, and a dedicated package delivery room.

“After recognizing an opportunity to positively impact businesses in the neighborhood through Llewellyn’s new residents, we’ve partnered with a variety of local retail businesses to provide seamless connectivity to neighborhood-serving retail in the post COVID environment,” said Alex Valente, senior vice president at High Street Residential. “We are very excited to help our new residents explore Mission Junction and the incredible locally owned businesses that operate within walking distance of the community.”

Apotheke, Arts District Brewery, Bunbury Barbershop, Cargo Snack Shack, Chimney Coffee, EastWest Shop, Highland Park Brewery, Majordomo and Phillipe’s are several locally owned businesses offering Llewellyn residents exclusive discounts.

Just two blocks from the Chinatown Metro Gold Line Station, Llewellyn residents can easily reach Union Station, Lincoln Heights, Pasadena and Azusa. The apartment community houses onsite covered parking for residents and guests and is conveniently located near the 110, 10, 5 and 101 freeways.

KFA is the project architect for Llewellyn, while T.B. Penick & Sons serves as contractor. Other partners include CDC Designs for interior design, Altitude Design Office for branding, Duane Border Design for landscape design, and Greystar for property management. Compass is the exclusive leasing agent.

Llewelyn is located at 1101 North Main Street. Monthly rates begin at $2,125. For more information, visit Llewellyn.la.
