Later this month, the Los Anglees City Planning will consider a proposal to construct a mixed-use building featuring apartments and ground-floor retail space in Eagle Rock.

The project, whose applicant is listed as Imad Boukhai of General Procurement, calls for the construction of a five-story building at 1332 W. Colorado Boulevard, featuring 26 residential units - including two for very low income households - above 4,138 square feet of retail space and 57 parking spaces.

Vanos Architects is designing the proposed development, which would provide common open space for resident through a roof deck and at the back of the property.

The Director of Planning has recommended that the Commission approve the project.

An earlier attempt to develop the property with apartments was scuttled midway through construction, leaving only its foundation completed.

Checking in on the Slow-Moving 1133 Hope Condo Tower

The 28-story tower broke ground in March 2017.

Slowly but surely, the concrete frame of 1133 Hope Street rises in South Park. The 28-story tower, located just east of Metro's Pico Station, will feature 200 residential units above 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail uses and a parking podium upon completion.  Plans for the mixed-use project dated back to 2005, when the Canadian development firm Amacon initially submitted plans for a 35-story building on the site.
