The project, slated for a corner lot at 1600 E. Venice Boulevard, calls for the construction of a four-story building featuring 77 apartments - including seven extremely low-income affordable units - above semi-subterranean parking for 43 vehicles. The inclusion of the affordable housing, as well as the property's proximity to high-frequency bus lines, makes the project eligible for Transit Oriented Communities incentives, thus reducing the amount of on-site parking required.
Robert James Taylor Architects is designing the low-rise structure, which would be clad in a mix of stucco and brick veneer. Architectural plans show that the building would include a rooftop amenity deck and a small central courtyard.
The project site, currently vacant, was previously improved with several small buildings containing nine rent-stabilized apartments.
Wiseman Residential is a prolific developer of multifamily housing in the Los Angeles area, with projects located in numerous neighborhoods. The company is planning a second project in Venice - a mixed-use building featuring apartments, offices, and ground-floor retail - on Lincoln Boulevard.
