According to an agenda from last week's meeting of the Del Rey Neighborhood Council's Community Planning, Traffic and Transportation Committee, a large mixed-use complex is planned for the Marina Del Rey Arts District.

California Landmark, the developer of several loft projects in the neighborhood, intends to construct another low-rise residential development on a current parking lot at 4210 Del Rey Avenue.  Plans the approximately two-acre property call for a five-story structure, containing 134 dwelling units and slightly under 15,000 square feet of office space.  The apartment complex, to be known as D1 Living, would also offer 359 parking spaces for use by residents and tenants of an adjacent office building.

A case filing from the Los Angeles Department of City Planning states that California Landmark has requested a 35% density bonus, indicated that subsidized housing will be included in the development.

The project is being designed by Woodland Hills-based PK Architecture, a firm has collaborated with California Landmark on several of their other Marina Del Rey developments.  Elevation plans included with the presentation indicate that the low-rise structure would be clad with plaster, glass and metal screening.  The building would be centered around two courtyards, with further open space provided by a rooftop amenity deck.

An exact construction timeline for D1 Living is currently unclear.  Records from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety currently show no permit applications on file.

To capitalize on this investment, the Cit
