A staff report to the Los Angeles Board of Recreation and Parks Commissioners has revealed plans for a mid-rise senior living development planned on Wilshire Boulevard.
The proposed development, slated for a property at 10822 Wilshire Boulevard, would replace the parking lot of Westwood Presbyterian Church. Plans call for the construction of a 12-story mixed-use building containing 54 senior apartments, 76 assisted living units, 46 memory care guest rooms along the northern property line.
To the south, facing Ashton Avenue, plans call for a smaller two-story school and church administration building.
A three-level subterranean parking garage is planned below the buildings.
Huitt-Zollars and KFA Architecture are project, which would rise to a maximum height of 153 feet. Architectural plans show that the project would include approximately 6,100 square feet of common open spaces, including a courtyard, two school play yards, and multiple recreation terraces on the housing building.
The project is being developed by Belmont Village, a Houston, Texas-based development firm specializing in senior living facilities. The company already operates two facilities in the Los Angeles area.
The staff report to the Board of Recreation and Parks Commissioners recommends that Belmont Village should be required to pay an in-lieu fee of approximately $700,000 for park development and upgrades in the surrounding community, rather than a land dedication for new green space.
The development site is located two blocks east of the intersection of Wilshire and Westwood Boulevards, where a new subway station is being built as part of Metro's Purple Line extension.
