Terra-Petra Waterproofing Division provides inspection services for new Trammell Crow Residential project in West Hollywood

Domain, a mixed-use development from Trammell Crow Residential, is now complete in West Hollywood. Terra-Petra Waterproofing was called in to provide building waterproofing inspection services prior to final close of project.

Located at 7141 Santa Monica Boulevard, just east of La Brea Avenue, the property features a seven-story building containing 166 apartments atop 9,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  The newly opened mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments.

Architecture firm Studio One Eleven designed Domain, which features a three-story opening along Santa Monica Boulevard.  Building heights gradually step down as the property approaches the lower-scale residential neighborhood to the north, creating space for outdoor decks.  Other amenities are located within a central courtyard, including a swimming pool.

Terra-Petra Assists on Final Phase of Dana Strand Development in Wilmington

Terra-Petra has recently completed its role on Phase 4 of the Dana Strand project in Wilmington, California. Our team of environmental engineering professionals has been involved with this project since its inception, having worked on Phases 1, 2 and 3.

Earlier this week, nonprofit developers Abode Communities and Mercy Housing California convened in Wilmington to celebrate the groundbreaking of Vista del Mar and Camino del Mar, a new collection of 176 affordable homes.

In addition to housing, the $71 million development will offer 35,000 square feet of open and recreational space, as well as features uch as a computer lab, bicycle parking and on-site social services.  The property also is located in close proximity to the Wilmington Waterfront Park.

The projects are considered the fourth and final phase of the Dana Strand Village redevelopment, which has repurposed a 20-acre post-war military housing site.  A full buildout of the New Dana Strand, the culmination of a process that began in 2000, will provide housing for approximately 750 people.

Vista del Mar and Camino del Mar were through both public and private sources, including U.S. Bank, low income housing tax credits and tax exempt bonds from the City of Los Angeles.

Completion is expected in 2018.
