Los Angeles-based developer CityView has taken another step forward with its plan to construct a mixed-use complex at 1800 Beverly Boulevard in Westlake, as the project heads to the City Planning Commission.

The proposed development, which calls for the demolition of a handful of small commercial and residential buildings, would create a five-story structure featuring 243 apartments - including 21 for very low-income households - and 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail uses.

Humphreys & Partners Architects is designing the building, which would incorporate open-space amenities such as a fitness center, a swimming pool, multiple courtyards and roof decks.  Plans also call for 292 vehicle parking spaces in a partially-underground garage.

The Planning Department's staff report recommends that the Commission grant approval to the project.  Previous environmental reports point to an 18-month construction timeline, starting sometime in 2018.

CityView is also behind the Pearl on Wilshire, which is nearing completion in Koreatown, and a five-story development now underway in Culver City.

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.
