The Los Angeles City Planning Commission is scheduled to review developer NSB Associates' proposal to construct an office buidling designed by the famed architect Frank Gehry in Playa Vista.

The project site, located at the corner of Beatrice Street and Jandy Place, is slated for an eight-story, 135-foot tall structure that would feature nearly 200,000 square feet of office space and a ground-floor restaurant.  Plans also call for new landscape and hardscape elements across the property, as well as parking for 845 vehicles.

Renderings how the proposed building is broken into two wings, rising above a commercial and parking podium.  The stepped form of the project allows for a series of landscape terrace levels and amenity decks.

Previous environmental documents have pointed to an approximately 22-month buildout for the project, with completion expected in 2019.

A staff recommendation argues for the approval of the proposed development.
