Cityview, a premier urban multifamily investment management and development firm, today announced the opening of The Pearl on Wilshire, a luxury mixed-use development featuring 346 apartment homes with a blend of studio, one- and two-bedroom units atop 8,300 square feet of carefully curated retail space.

“Koreatown is experiencing an incredible revitalization and The Pearl is the manifestation of what the young, vibrant community has been craving in urban living,” said Sean Burton, CEO of Cityview. “VTBS Architects and Nadia Geller Designs were fantastic partners that helped us bring to life a space that seamlessly integrates into the Koreatown community.”

Cityview intentionally selected ground-floor retailers that would enhance the resident experience, including Alchemist Coffee Project, a café featuring specialty coffee, baked goods, paninis and deserts, as well as The Carving Board, an artisan sandwich shop featuring high-quality ingredients at reasonable prices.

Select units also feature oversized balconies, high ceilings and panoramic views of the city.

Community amenities include a rooftop terrace with a fireplace and sweeping city views, Korean BBQ grills, dog wash and grooming stations for pets, three open-air lounge spaces with firepits and a bocce ball court, a large pool deck with cabanas and lounge seating, a state-of-the-art fitness center featuring a yoga room and Fitness On-Demand®, meeting and event space as well as a game and club room. On-demand offerings include lifestyle services such as dog walking, dry cleaning and housekeeping services.
