Next week, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission will review a proposal to construct a mixed-use development on the outskirts of Century City.

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.

Staff has recommended that the Commission approve the project.
