If any Los Feliz/Silver Lake denizens already feel overwhelmed by the area's upcoming development boom, please read no further.  According to a recent LADCP case filing, the property located at the northeast corner of Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards is destined for a new residential-retail complex.  The project is described as an approximately 217,000 square foot structure, featuring 202 dwelling units and just shy of 15,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.  The new development would occupy a full city block, bounded by Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards and Hillhurst and Clayton Avenues.

Located a quarter-mile east of the Sunset/Vermont Red Line Station, the project site lies within easy walking distance of several proposed mixed-use developments along the rapidly evolving Sunset corridor.  Directly across the Hillhurst Avenue, plans for a 17-room hotel next to the Vista Theater have drawn out locals bearing pitchforks.  Further south along the boulevard, locally-based Frost/Chaddock Developers intends to construct a trio of Killefer Flammang-designed apartment complexes.  As seems to be the case with most developments north of Downtown, several vocal neighbors are unhappy with all of the above.
