This week, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission will consider a proposal to redevelop a full city block in Koreatown with a residential-retail complex.

Located at 1000 S. Vermont Avenue, the project calls for demolishing a gas station, a medical office building, and 32 existing apartments to make way for the construction of a seven-story building featuring 228 apartments, 53,498 square feet of commercial uses, and parking for 565 vehicles.

The colorful podium-type building, called "Hannam Place," is depicted with an outdoor pool and amenity deck at its third floor.  The design for the project comes from Koreatown-based architecture firm EWAI.

A staff report to the Planning Commission recommends the approval of requested entitlements, including a zone change and master conditional use permit for alcohol sales.

The project, which would rise at the corner of Vermont and Olympic Boulevard, is located a few blocks from a pair of mixed-use developments now taking shape at Olympic and Catalina Street.
