For the second time in three weeks, La Terra Development has a project scheduled for consideration at the Santa Monica Architectural Review Board.

The latest development, planned at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Yale Street, would consist of a three-story building featuring 50 residential units above ground-floor retail uses and a two-level basement garage.  Other project elements would include a large patio and central courtyard space.

Tighe Architecture is designing the low-rise structure which would be wrapped with perforated metal screens punctuated with openings to provide recessed balconies on upper floors.

The development site is currently improved with a single-tenant retail building with attached surface parking.

La Terra and Tighe presented plans last month to the Architectural Review Board for a pair of similar three-story buildings at the intersection of Cloverfield and Broadway.  Those projects, when built, would create a combined 49 apartments.

Chinese developer plans the tallest building West of the Mississippi River.

Last year, the Wilshire Grand claimed the title of the West Coast's tallest building, with a slender spire that peaks 1,100 feet above Downtown Los Angeles.  But a newly proposed tower just up the street seems to be gunning for its crown at the highest tower west of the Mississippi River.

Last week, Chinese developer Shenzhen New World Group filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to redevelop the 1980s L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown at 333 S.
