Next week, the Santa Monica Architectural Review Board will consider a proposal to develop a currently vacant lot just south of Wilshire Boulevard with a residential-retail complex.

The proposed mixed-use project, slated for a 7,500-square-foot site at 1235 5th Street, calls for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 23 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, in addition to 1,873 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and approximately 20 vehicle parking stalls.

E.D.D.G., Inc. is designing the mid-rise structure, which would be clad with metal, wood panels, and fiber cement boards.

The project is being developed by a Santa Monica-based entity known as 1235 5th Street, LLC.

Proposed Small Lot Development Near Barnsdall Park Faces Appeal

Plans call for 18 small lot homes on Hollywood Boulevard.

On July 24, the Central Area Planning Commission is scheduled to consider an appeal of a proposed small lot subdivision across the street from Barnsdall Park. The project, located at 4765-4773 Hollywood Boulevard, calls for demolishing an existing commercial building and parking lot to make way for the construction of 18 single-family residences.  The three-story buildings would offer floor plans between 1,794 and 2,969 square feet, each featuring a two-car garage.
