Ventura County-based Peterberg Companies is planning a new collection of small lot houses in Valley Village, according to the agenda of an upcoming meeting of the South Valley Area Planning Commission.

The proposed development, slated for a .38-acre site at 5137-5149 N. Colfax Avenue, calls for the demolition of four residential units, two commercial buildings and a buildboard to clear the way for the construction of 12 single-family houses.

The three-story buildings, designed by Nyu Designs, will each offer 1,800-square-foot floor plans with three bedrooms, a two-car garage and a rooftop deck.

A staff report from the Planning Department recommends approval for the project.

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.
