Just as one of West Los Angeles' abandoned car dealership prepares for a mixed-use conversion, a similar development plan is emerging at the same intersection. According to a recent case filing from LADCP, a quarter-acre lot at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Westgate Avenue is slated for a new residential-retail development. Plans call for a four-story building, consisting of 39 apartments and ground-level commercial space. The apartments and retail stalls would be served by a three-level subterranean parking garage.
The low-rise complex would rise directly across the street from a larger mixed-use development, proposed by the Hollywood-based CIM Group. Their plans, recently discussed with members of the West Los Angeles Neighborhood Council, would create a four-story, 157-unit apartment building on the former site of Beurge Ford.
Adding to this momentum, other development schemes are percolating on properties further east. CIM Group owns a second vacant car dealership nearby, although exact plans for the property have yet to crystallize. Surprisingly, Curbed LA reports that development rumors have also surfaced at the former site of West Los Angeles' "Ghetto Vons."
