A document from the Los Angeles Department of City Planning (LADCP) has unveiled renderings for an upcoming apartment building near the UCLA campus.

The proposed development, slated for a property at 662 S. Kelton Avenue, would consist of a four-story structure featuring 12 residential units.  In exchange for setting aside one of the apartments as very low income housing, the project has requested a reduction in the code-required amount of open space and an increase in allowable height.

The modern low-rise building, designed by Plus Architects, would replace an existing three-story residential building.

A local activist has appealed the project's earlier approvals to the City Planning Commission.  LADCP staff have recommended that the appeal be denied.

Last year, the Wilshire Grand claimed the title of the West Coast's tallest building, with a slender spire that peaks 1,100 feet above Downtown Los Angeles.  But a newly proposed tower just up the street seems to be gunning for its crown at the highest tower west of the Mississippi River.

Last week, Chinese developer Shenzhen New World Group filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to redevelop the 1980s L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown at 333 S.
