Projects from Jade Enterprises would rise in South Park and City West.

This week, the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council’s Planning and Land Use Committee will review Sapphire and Emerald, a pair of residential-retail developments planned by Jade Enterprises.

Sapphire, slated for a roughly two-acre site in the City West neighborhood, would consist of two seven-story structures linked by a pedestrian bridge.

The north building, which would replace a parking garge on 5th Street, would offer 142 residential units and 139 parking stalls in a three-level, partially underground garage. Plans call for a series of townhouse-style units along the building’s ground floor. Additional features would include a skydeck, an outdoor swimming pool and a fitness room.

The south building would rise at the intersection of 6th and Bixel Streets, replacing an office complex. Plans call for 227 residential units, situated above 22,000 square feet of ground-level retail and restaurant space. Residential amenities would include a swimming pool, a skydeck, a fitness center, multiple courtyards and a 241-car garage.

The proposed development, designed by Steinberg Architects and LRM Landscape Architecture, will have a contemporary look with exterior materials that include pre-finished metal panels, plaster and composite siding.

Further details, such as a budget and timeline for the project, have yet to be disclosed.
