A gas station at Melrose and Highland Avenues has been demolished, clearing the way for the construction of a new apartment building on the corner property.

The project site, first pointed out by photgorapher Michael Hayes, will yield a four-story building featuring 19 apartments over ground-floor restaurant space and an subterranean parking garage.

City records indicate that Vanos Architects is designing the low-rise building.  A rendering shows a contemporary design highlighted by an all-glass skin imprinted with supergraphics.

Additional details about the project are unclear.

Six-Story Apartment Building to Rise on Westlake Parking Lot

Another project through the Transit Oriented Communities program.

A 9,300-square-foot surface parking lot in Westlake is slated for development, according to plans filed last week with the City of Los Angeles.

The property, located at 366 S. Loma Drive, could see the construction of a six-story building featuring 39 apartments - including affordable units - above a partially subterranean parking garage.
