Rampart Mint Welcomes 22 Formerly Homeless People

Rampart Mint Welcomes 22 Formerly Homeless People

Great article from beverlypress.com below about a this project in the Rampart Village area of Los Angeles.  Terra-Petra is very proud to have been a part of this project.  We designed and inspected the methane mitigation system during development, working with both the West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation and KFA.

West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation is proud to announce the opening of Rampart Mint, an all-new, affordable apartment community for formerly homeless individuals. Located in the Rampart Village area of Los Angeles, Rampart Mint includes 22 permanent supportive housing units and one unit for an on-site resident manager.

Co-developed with Affordable Living for the Aging, Rampart Mint is built on city-owned land. ALA will provide the on-site building management and has decades of experience working with special needs populations.

“When residents begin to move in, it makes the project real for us,” said Matt Mason, WHCHC’s director of real estate development. “We’re all very proud to be able to create quality affordable apartments for L.A.’s most vulnerable community members.”

The KFA-designed building includes a spacious community room with kitchenette, a computer area, a rooftop garden with amazing views of the city, a building manager’s office and social services office.

“This has been a labor of love,” WHCHC Assistant Project Manager Rachel Peled said. “These last few days putting the final pieces in place, knowing their life-changing value, was electric.”

Rampart Mint was built by Dreyfuss Construction. Pioneering universal design principles have been incorporated so every unit accommodates those with and without physical limitations. Residents can truly age in place without fear of displacement.

“I am so pleased to see the Rampart Mint project come to life,” said Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District, who represents parts of the Westlake neighborhood on the Los Angeles City Council. “My office has actively supported this project from the beginning, and I welcome 22 apartments for chronically homeless individuals with special needs in the district I represent. I look forward to continuing our work with WHCHC to create more quality affordable housing, including supportive housing, for our most vulnerable.”

Ivy Station Wins Gold In LA Business Journal 2022 Commercial Real Estate Awards

Ivy Station in Culver City won the gold medal in the LA Business Journal 2022 Commercial Real Estate Awards this month.  Terra-Petra worked on this project a couple years ago when it was in development performing all of the below grade environmental inspections.  It’s wonderful to see a project like this come to fruition and watch it win this award a few years later.

From The LA Business Journal March 7, 2022:

Located adjacent to the Culver City Metro E Line station, the 500,000 square foot, mixed-use Ivy Station provides a welcoming and active gateway to Culver City for residents, metro riders and visitors to the burgeoning area. Ivy Station links two rapidly evolving, but previously distinct and separate areas of Culver City – the lively historic downtown with its studios, restaurants and nightlife, and the Culver City Arts District with its growing roster of creative and media companies like WarnerMedia (based at Ivy Station), Apple, Sony and Amazon. Ivy Station’s large landscaped outdoor area is programmed with a host of activities such as games, fitness, movie nights, art shows, gift fairs and concerts to appeal to Ivy Station residents and businesses, commuters, and neighbors. With porous multiple points of access, the property encourages the community, Metro riders, Ivy Station residents and employees to walk or bike through this bustling area of Culver City. The prominent 5.2-acre Ivy Station site is located predominantly in Culver City with a portion, along Venice Blvd, located in the City of Los Angeles. The trapezoidal shape of the parcel created a complex geometry, which generated unique forms that provide the campus’ dramatic architecture.

Methane Mitigation Design And Consulting – Los Angeles, CA

Terra-Petra’s Environmental Engineering Division has been engaged by IBI Group to provide methane mitigation design and consulting services for a City of Los Angeles project known as the Hollywood Sanitation Yard in Los Angeles, CA.

The proposed new yard is for the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation (BOS) Wastewater Conveyance Division. The site area is approximately 38,500 square feet, with about 13,000 square feet of existing one-story garage and office building to be demolished for the new facility. Approximately 8,500 square feet of 2-story new building will house office spaces, locker rooms, restrooms, exercise room, kitchen, assembly room, storage and other support rooms for the building to accommodate the daily yard operation.

Terra-Petra is recognized as an SBE and provides On-Call Consulting Services.

Soil Gas Investigation Los Angeles, CA

In early January, Terra-Petra performed a soil gas investigation (SGI) in Los Angeles, CA, in accordance with LADBS guidelines (Information Bulletin Ref. No. 91.7104.1, P/BC 2002-101) under Terra-Petra’s LADBS Methane Testing Lab License #10224, for a major property developer.

We are pleased to continue the partnership to provide mitigation design and consulting services. The project consists of the construction of a new slab on grade warehouse building with a building footprint of approximately 169,253 SF.

There are as many as six (6) oil wells on this property, three of which may fall under the footprint of the new building. The scope of work includes methane mitigation plan design (passive system) and permitting, methane gas detection system design (active system) and permitting, and construction administration support.

Methane Mitigation Services – Harbor City, CA

Terra-Petra is currently working with a Victorville design team to provide  Soil Gas Investigation (SGI), methane mitigation design, inspection, and consulting services for a retail development located in Harbor City, CA. The project will consist of a new 3-story cannabis facility (occupied by a dispensary, cultivation rooms, manufacturing facility and distribution ) constructed out of steel frame, with insulated metal panel exterior and interior walls, and an open air parking garage below the structure. The total building footprint is approximately 4,712 SF and total site square footage is 41,894.20 SF.

Terra-Petra will be consulting on all mitigation matters relative to the site, including methane testing, laboratory testing, methane mitigation system design, construction administration support, and DMBI inspections to be in compliance with City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS) codes.

Methane Mitigation Design – Hub on Campus LA Figueroa

Terra-Petra is currently working with AMP Development to provide methane mitigation design and consulting services for the proposed new Hub on Campus LA Figueroa, located in Los Angeles, CA.

The project will consist of the construction of a new 7-story commercial residential mixed-use development with 5,128 SF of commercial space and 157 residential dwelling units with a single level subterranean basement. The total building footprint is approximately 41,600 SF.

The scope of work includes methane mitigation design and permitting, and construction administration support (material submittal review, field sketches, Request for Information [RFI’s], and attending any specialized construction coordination conferences).

Methane Soil Gas Investigation – Enlightenment Plaza

Terra-Petra completed a methane soil gas investigation on behalf of Killefer Flammang Architects at Enlightenment Plaza, in Los Angeles, CA. The new multi-phase development will include the construction of 5 new slab on grade apartment buildings.

The overall site is approximately 90,984.2 SF. LADBS required a site investigation as the property falls in a Methane Buffer Zone. Terra-Petra completed the LADBS required MSGI under Terra-Petra’s LADBS Methane Testing Lab License #10224.
