A document from the West Hollywood Design Review Board offers up a first look at a proposed mixed-use development at the corner of Fairfax and Romaine Avenues.

The project, which comes from Los Angeles-based Empire Property Group, is dubbed the Empire at Fairfax.  Plans call for a five-story building featuring 35 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments atop approximately 1,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Empire's development would contain seven units of subsidized affordable housing - priced for the very-low-, low-, and moderate-income levels.

Levin-Morris Architects is designing the approximately 31,000-square-foot structure, which will incorporate open-space amenities such as a common gym and a rooftop deck with a spa.

A timeline for the project has not been announced.

Empire is currently in the midst of a similar development on Norton Avenue.

On July 24, the Central Area Planning Commission is scheduled to consider an appeal of a proposed small lot subdivision across the street from Barnsdall Park. The project, located at 4765-4773 Hollywood Boulevard, calls for demolishing an existing commercial building and parking lot to make way for the construction of 18 single-family residences.  The three-story buildings would offer floor plans between 1,794 and 2,969 square feet, each featuring a two-car garage.
