Two years after clearing away West L.A.'s former Dolores Restaurant, Wiseman Residential is preparing to begin construction on a residential-retail complex in its place.

The project site, located at 11407 Santa Monica Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a five-story building featuring 51 residential units and 1,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  Plans call for a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units - including four which would be set aside as affordable housing - as well as a roof garden and basement parking for 88 vehicles.

Uriu & Associates, which frequently works with Wiseman, is designing the project.

A handful of similar developments are now planned or underway to the south along Sawtelle Boulevard.
