Projects
Multi-family residential work accounted for the biggest chunk of completed projects: 30 percent of the firms took part. Office projects (27 percent) and mixed-use developments (23 percent) were next, followed by hospitality (15 percent). Luxury and accessibility are driving development: High-end rental, condominium, and co-op space accounts for more than half of projects and neighborhoods offering accessibility—the Arts District, Culver City, and Koreatown/Chinatown—are in high demand.
