Los Angeles — Landmark Properties has broken ground on The Standard at Los Angeles, a 1,284-bed student housing community located a few blocks south of the University of Southern California (USC) campus. The mid-rise apartment building will include the construction of 1,236 beds across 429 units, as well as the renovation of five existing townhomes that will comprise 48 beds.

Landmark Construction, the in-house general contractor for Landmark Properties, is managing construction. The property is slated to open in August 2026.

Situated at the east side of the 160-acre Exposition Park, The Standard at Los Angeles will include a mix of floor plans ranging from studios to five-bedroom units. Residences will be fully wired for high-speed internet.

Landmark says the amenity package at The Standard at Los Angeles will be one of the largest by square footage within its portfolio. Residents will have access to more than 60,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces.

The rooftop will include a resort-style pool with a sun deck, Jumbotron and outdoor grilling stations. The clubhouse spaces will be anchored by a rooftop clubroom adjoining the 24-hour fitness center. Students will have access to multiple study lounges as well as an interior courtyard with various seating areas and a micro-market for convenient food options.

The Standard at Los Angeles marks Landmark’s second community in Los Angeles. The Mark at Los Angeles serves the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) campus.

“We’ve been looking for opportunities near USC for a long time and we’re excited to be able to deliver a project of this scale to the students of USC,” says Wes Rogers, president and CEO of Landmark. “The location boasts remarkable access to academics, athletics and neighborhood amenities, while the size of our site will allow us to deliver something truly unique to the market.”

Headquartered in Athens, Georgia, with an office in Atlanta, Landmark is a fully integrated real estate firm specializing in the acquisition, development and management of residential communities. With $13 billion in assets under management, Landmark’s portfolio includes more than 115 properties nationwide with 71,000 beds under management.
