A document from the Los Angeles City Planning Commission has unveiled renderings for a proposed development in Hollywood.

A limited liability company linked to Wiseman Development is planning a multifamily residential complex at 7120 W. Sunset Boulevard.  The property, currently a vacant lot, would become a five-story building featuring 60 apartments, seven of which would be set aside as affordable housing.  Plans also call for approximately 3,400 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, as well parking accommodations for 125 vehicles and 88 bicycles.

Renderings portray a contemporary low-rise building, clad with grey smooth trowel stucco.  Proposed amenities include glass balconies, a central courtyard and a rooftop deck.

City Planning staff have recommended that the Commission approve the project.

Faring Capital is planning a similar project further west along Sunset Boulevard.
