West Hollywood-based developer Faring continues to move forward with plans to construct a pair of mixed-use buildings at 7500 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, with the release this week of the project's Final Environmental Impact Report.

The project, which would replace a series of commercial buildings on either side of Sierra Bonita Avenue, is now proposed with just 213 residential units - down from the original plan of 236 - due to comments on its draft environmental report.  Plans call for a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings, of which 20 would be set aside for very low-income households.  Plans for approximately 30,000 square feet of street-level retail space remain unchanged.

Planned underground parking was also increased to 462 total spaces on account of comments on the draft report.

KFA Architecture is designing the two-building development, both of which would have a five-story height profile fronting Sunset Boulevard.  However, to accommodate the decrease in total apartments, the buildings will step down to a three-story height-profile toward adjacent buildings along the south side of the project site.

An updated timeline for 7500 Sunset has not been announced.
