With sales beginning March 8, 2009, “The Exposition” project is sited on a trapezoidal lot with a system of staggered solid and colored panels to bring the elevations to life. The North and South façades feature expanses of glass with a steel moment frame construction. The exterior color scheme moves from white to dark, with blue intervals to integrate with the sky. The project features condominiums in one and two bedroom configurations, with an average size of 1,500 sqft.

“Not often does deasy/penner get to represent such remarkable architecture on the Westside of Los Angeles at this more value oriented price point,” said Mike Deasy, CEO of deasy/penner&partners. “Expo provides a much expanded group of buyers, often overlooked in architectural circles, the opportunity to live in quality design.

With over 2 million square feet and 20 years of retail and residential real estate development under his belt, DeBolt has significant previous architectural multi-unit experience and has garnered such awards as the 2005 National AIA award for Multi Family Projects. “I am honored to work with deasy/penner and Kanner Architects on our sixth project, The Exposition,” says DeBolt. “The building was developed to deliver cutting edge architecture at an affordable price, and both partners are committed to same objective.”
