AXIS Apartments is comprised of two separate sites in Downtown Los Angeles. Named after their respective locations - AXIS on Eleventh and AXIS on Twelfth relate to the neighboring historic Herald Examiner building, built in 1914 and designed by Hearst Castle architect Julia Morgan. AXIS on Twelfth achieved LEED Silver Certification and features a unique street corner canopy detail reflecting the predominant geometric pattern found on the historic structure. A new landscaped paseo will be shared with the Herald Building and AXIS on Eleventh when it opens in Spring of 2018. Owned and developed by Forest City, the two sites total 391 apartments, averaging 740 sf in area, and total 16,000 sf of street-level retail space. The firm of Harley Ellis Devereaux was the design architect on the project.
