Earlier this month, Los Angeles City Planning Commission reviewed Wiseman Development's revised proposal to raze a single-family dwelling in East Hollywood for a new apartment building.

The project, located on a single parcel at 4749 W. Elmwood Avenue, calls for the construction of a four-story, 14-unit building with one apartment set aside for very low-income households.  Plans also call for 20 parking spaces on a single basement level.

An earlier design presented to the Commission drew criticism due to its ground-level garage entrance and lack of perimeter landscaping.  The revised design incorporates features from Spanish architecture, while also adding more articulation to its facade and relocating its rooftop deck towards the front of the property.

The Planning Department's staff report once again recommended approval for the development.

Beckmen YOLA Center @ Inglewood, the future permanent home of the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA). The $14.5-million project will transform a former branch of Security Pacific Bank at 101 S.
