Another trophy property on Sunset Boulevard is slated for a large mixed-use development.

Last week, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a new residential-retail complex on the approximately 1.2-acre property at 6200 Sunset Boulevard.  Plans call for an approximately 240,000-square-foot complex, featuring 270 apartments and 12,400 square feet of ground-level floor area devoted to retail and restaurant uses.

The property is currently occupied by series of one-story buildings featuring a car wash, a pharmacy and other businesses.

The project's case filing links it to the Hanover Group, a privately-held real estate firm which specializes in the development and management of multi-family residential communities.  The Houston-based company has constructed numerous residential buildings in Downtown Los Angeles, and was notably stymied in its efforts to build a 20-story apartment tower on Hollywood Boulevard in 2012.

Further details about the proposed development are unavailable at this point in time.

The Hanover proposal is one of numerous mixed-use complexes which are either planned or underway along Sunset Boulevard, including the massive Columbia Square and Icon developments, which will house the Los Angeles offices of Viacom and Netflix respectively.  Further down the pipeline, two residential developments are slated for the large surface parking lots abutting the Hollywood Palladium and the Earl Carroll Theatre.

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.
