The View, located at 3460 West 7th Street, was originally constructed in 1965 and underwent a $25.5 million redevelopment in 2013, entirely transforming the building.Unit interiors have been fully amenitized with Caserstone countertops, soft close cabinetry, Frigidaire stainless steel appliances, double basin stainless steel sinks, recessed lighting, and washer/dryer combination units. The community features a modern fitness studio on the ground floor, fully equipped fitness center, large pool and sundeck, barbeque area, outdoor lounge and community room.

The Koreatown submarket is experiencing a development boom, evidence of the area’s gentrification. With a walk score of 96, residents have access to restaurants, entertainment and nightlife.
