A new apartment building proposed for Palms will be reviewed next week by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission.

The project, which was filed with the Planning Department this past summer, would redevelop at the southwest corner of Overland and Rose Avenues with a six-story building featuring 41 apartments - including four units for very low-income households.

DFH Architects is designing the podium-type building, the firm's third project on Overland Avenue.  Renderings show a contemporary design featuring an active roof level.

An abutting property owner has appealed the project's positive determination letter to the Planning Commission due to a dispute over an alleyway which runs between the two sites.  A staff report recommends that the Commission deny the appeal.

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.
