Next week, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission will consider an appeal against a proposed multifamily residential development just south of Pico Boulevard.

The project, located at the northeast corner of Hi Point and Pickford Streets, calls for the demolition of three single-family dwellings and a two-story apartment building to make way for a four-story edifice featuring 45 residential units over one level of underground parking.  Plans call for 41 market rate units and four apartments set aside for very low-income households.

Architect Valentine Janev is designing the low-rise development, which would be oriented around a central courtyard.

The Planning Department's staff report recommends that the appeal of the project be denied.

Two similar apartment buildings are now underway one block north at Saturn Avenue.

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.
