The design of The Curve @ West Angeles was inspired by the Crenshaw Corridor’s history of 1930s and 1940s Art Deco architecture, according to John Arnold, AIA, KFA Partner.
The development will be located just two blocks north of the Crenshaw/Slauson Station in Park Mesa Heights, which is currently under construction and slated for opening in 2019. The development is a project of the West Angeles Community Development Corporation and Related Companies of California.
