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.

Small Apartment Building Slated for Crescent Heights Boulevard

Three-story, 12-unit building would rise on two parcels.

Last week, the City of West Hollywood's Design Review Subcommittee considered a proposal to construct a small apartment building on two parcels at 1011 and 1015 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard.

The project, which is being designed by Culver City-based architecture firm Modative, calls for the construction of a three-story, 12-unit building featuring 20 parking spaces.  Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings, including one unit of affordable housing.
