VOX at Cumulus, a 14-acre work-live-play development in Los Angeles, offers 910 housing units and 100,000 sf of retail space anchored by a Whole Foods outlet. VOX, one of the largest mixed-use communities to open in the Los Angeles area, features apartments and townhomes with more than one dozen floorplans. Available units include studios and one-, two-, and three-bedroom options between 504 sf and 1,456 sf. The transit-oriented development is located close to the La Cienega/Jefferson Metro station, providing residents access to downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica.
The inclusion of retail tenants is credited with building community support for the massive development.
“With retail leasing under way, our goal is to attract retailers that will complement the Cumulus’ residents and neighborhood,” said Will Cipes, senior vice president, development with Carmel Partners. “This means we are seeking restaurants, cafés, coffee shops, yoga studios, and other Class-A retail tenants that will grow the district into one of the premier destinations on the Westside.”
Residential units were designed with bright, well-spaced layouts and high-quality finishes. Units are equipped with keyless entry locks and feature floor-to-ceiling windows with roll-down shades offering wide-ranging views of Los Angeles. Luxury vinyl plank flooring and recessed lighting throughout add a clean, modern feel. Open-concept kitchens include soft-close Italian-style modern cabinetry, and quartz countertops.
In-unit laundry, via a set of stacked Electrolux washers and dryers, is standard. Bedrooms feature sizable wardrobes, and bathrooms are finished with porcelain tile flooring and oversized soaking tubs. Select residences will offer dramatic, ten-and-a-half-foot ceilings and expansive windows for additional volume and light.
Residential amenities include two resort-style swimming pools, clubhouses, and a bocce court. A plush co-working lounge with private meeting spaces supports an office-from-home environment. A recording studio and luxury screening room offer additional areas for work and entertainment. Residents can break a sweat at VOX’s onsite fitness center, and wind down after a long day in its tranquil yoga room.
Sustainability features include 1,736 solar panels, storm water infiltration systems, and a park designed to help reduce the heat island effect. About 20% of parking spaces support electric car charging. The project has also earned Green Point Rated Platinum, a third-party verification on above-code, high-performance single and multi-family homes. This acknowledges best building practices in multiple categories such as energy efficiency, air quality, water conservation, and resource conservation.
