The project, slated for a property at 10604-10612 W. Santa Monica Boulevard, would consist of a five-story building featuring 24 residential units above 625 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Plans call for three units of very low income housing, as well as parking for 44 vehicles in a partially underground garage.
An existing 14-room motel would be demolished to make room for the new development.
Architecture firm Uriu & Associates is designing the podium-type building, which would be clad with a mixture of stucco, wood panels and brick veneer.
Staff has recommended that the Commission approve the project.
