Six-Story Apartment Building to Rise on Westlake Parking Lot

Another project through the Transit Oriented Communities program.

A 9,300-square-foot surface parking lot in Westlake is slated for development, according to plans filed last week with the City of Los Angeles.

The property, located at 366 S. Loma Drive, could see the construction of a six-story building featuring 39 apartments - including affordable units - above a partially subterranean parking garage.
