A one-story commercial building in the Mid-Wilshirie area could give way for a multifamily residential development, per a filing today with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The project, slated for a half-acre site at 1180 S. La Brea Avenue, is slated for a nearly 60,000-square-foot building featuring 67 rental apartments, 2,400 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for a maximum of 94 vehicles.  Plans call for six units of affordable housing within the development, in exchange for density bonus incentives.

City records list the project applicant at 1180 La Brea, LLC.

A smaller mixed-use building is planned three blocks north at the corner of La Brea and 9th Street.

Four-Story Development Tops Out at 1st & Fairfax

The project includes 45 apartments and ground-floor retail space.

The wood-and-concrete frame of a small mixed-use development near The Grove is now complete. The four-story development, which comes from local real estate firm Conroy Commercial, replaces an auto body repair shop at 1st Street and Fairfax Avenue.  City records indicate the building will feature 45 residential units atop 1,258 square feet of ground-floor commercial space above a basement parking garage. Ovalle Architects, a Long Beach-based firm, designed the contemporary low-rise structure.
