The Los Angeles City Council has cleared the way for Dynamic Development Company to construct a residential-retail complex in Los Feliz, rejecting an appeal from a half-dozen nearby residents. 

The project, planned at the southeast corner of Western and Franklin Avenues, calls for the construction of a five-story building that would feature 87 residential units - including 11 apartments for very low-income households - above 6,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial uses and basement parking for 112 vehicles.

The proposed development, designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, was downsized from an earlier proposal for a 97-unit building in 2016.  The redesign of the project reduces its height profile fronting Franklin Avenue to create a new terrace deck.

News of the approval was first reported by the Los Feliz Ledger.

Multifamily residential complex wrapping up work near DTLA.

Just west of the Harbor Freeway, Lion Real Estate Group is now wrapping up construction at a new apartment complex overlooking the Downtown skyline. Eastview, as the property at 327-411 Boylston Avenue is known, consists of a seven-story building featuring 121 one- and two-bedroom apartments above parking for 145 vehicles.  Plans call for 14 of the residential units to be set aside as affordable housing.
