Listen to this article

Leaders in multifamily real estate since 1996, Carmel Partners has skillfully transformed markets and submarkets across the U.S. through development of multifamily properties built to perfection. Prominently located between Los Angeles’ West Adams and Culver City neighborhoods, Cumulus District is becoming one of the firm’s most acclaimed projects, recently named the “Best New Multifamily Development” in Los Angeles, California, by the CoStar Group in its 2022 CoStar Impact Awards. With 46 winners per year chosen by a panel of industry professionals, this award recognizes Carmel Partners’ transformative work in the L.A. market.

Located on the southern end of La Cienega Boulevard, Carmel Partners developed Cumulus District in the heart of a revitalizing area. Culver City and West Adams have a long history serving the arts within Los Angeles, but recently this area has exploded as a creative hub for film, television and technology companies, housing over three-million square-feet of creative office spaces. Aside from its new role as a competitive employment destination, pedestrian-friendly streets and an eclectic mix of local shops, theaters, galleries and restaurants continue to attract talented Angelinos and newcomers to L.A. to this neighborhood destination. With the convenient light rail system, area residents can experience the best of L.A.’s downtown and Westside at Cumulus District.

Carmel Partners developed Cumulus District as a reflection of the neighborhood’s vibrant and creative culture, intertwined with hints of modernity. Comprised of two apartment communities, ‘VOX’ and ‘ARQ,’ Cumulus District has a collective 1,210 units marked by a high standard of design and quality. Visibly impressive from a distance, Cumulus District’s ARQ is the tallest free-standing tower in West L.A., within one of the largest multifamily destinations in Los Angeles. Though differentiated by separate color schemes, all residences include floor-to-ceiling windows and wood-style flooring in living areas and Italian cabinetry, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchens. Completing each apartment home, Carmel Partners included stacked Electrolux washing and drying machines and wireless Bluetooth entrance locks, adding comfort and convenience.

With a modern tone throughout, Carmel Partners developed Cumulus District as a property rich with amenities. VOX design was inspired by the rich jazz and cultural history of nearby West Adams. At VOX, residents are immersed in a 1920s music club-inspired lobby, followed by a fully-equipped recording studio and screening room which appeal to the community’s creative residents. In a more modern fashion, ARQ invites residents to explore the Great Room, gourmet kitchen and sky lounge, offering a towering 31-story view of L.A.’s downtown and coast. Both properties offer separate fitness centers, coworking lounges and upscale dining areas. Uniting the two apartment complexes into one, cohesive community, Cumulus District centers around a 1-acre Zocalo park, the property’s most popular outdoor gathering space. Nearby, a Whole Foods Market is slated to open later this summer, filling a portion of the property’s 100,000-square-feet of retail space.

Combining an abundance of upscale units, unique lifestyle amenities and a prime L.A. location, Cumulus District is redefining the definition of luxury living between West Adams and Culver City. Recognized for its transformative influence by CoStar, Carmel Partners celebrates the naming of Cumulus District as one of L.A.’s top development projects.
