Next week, the Central Area Planning Commission will consider an appeal against a proposal to raze a Hollywood duplex and construct a new small lot subdivision in its place.

The project, slated for a 26,700-square-foot lot at 6517-6533 W. Lexington Avenue, would include 18 small lot homes, each featuring three-to-four bedrooms, a two-car parking garage and rooftop decks.

Architect Farzin Maly is designing the proposed houses, which would be laid out in an H-shape across the rectangular project site.

An entity known as Save Old Hollywood has appealed the project's approvals, alleging incompatibility with the surrounding neighborhood.  The Planning Department's staff report recommends that the appeal should be denied.

Apartments With Retail Planned West of the Grove

Low-rise building would feature 50 apartments over ground-floor commercial uses.

An auto body repair shop and two small commercial buildings located near the Grove could make way for a residential-retail complex.

Earlier today, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a mixed-use project at 8000-8014 W. 3rd Street in the Beverly Grove neighborhood.  Plans call for a 50-unit building - including five affordable apartments - with approximately 7,250 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
