Construction is underway for a new set of small lot homes in Palms, replacing a set of small apartments.

The approximately .32-acre property, located at 9218-9224 National Boulevard, will feature 10 homes at completion, according to a filing with the City of Los Angeles.

Renderings portray a collection of contemporary three-story structures.

The development is located midway between the Expo Line's Culver City and Palms Stations, and within the Expo Corridor Transit Neighborhood Plan area.  Nearby segments of National Boulevard could be in line for rezoning as a mixed-use corridor, under a proposal put forth by Councilmember Paul Koretz.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
