A tipster sends word that a mixed-use development that incorporates the facade of a historic building has broken ground in Hollywood.

Located at 6630-6634 Sunset Boulevard, the project will consist of a six-story building, featuring 35 apartments and approximately 5,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space.  Plans call for a mix of studio and one-bedroom dwellings, in addition to communal amenities such as a roof deck and a 49-car parking garage.

David Kellen & Associates and Ken Stockton Architects are designing the podium-type building, which was retooled in 2015 to retain the facade of a Streamline Moderne office building at 6634 Sunset, which was built in 1927.

The project is tied to A.J. Khair, a Los Angeles based development and construction firm.

Four-Story Development Tops Out at 1st & Fairfax

The project includes 45 apartments and ground-floor retail space.

The wood-and-concrete frame of a small mixed-use development near The Grove is now complete. The four-story development, which comes from local real estate firm Conroy Commercial, replaces an auto body repair shop at 1st Street and Fairfax Avenue.  City records indicate the building will feature 45 residential units atop 1,258 square feet of ground-floor commercial space above a basement parking garage. Ovalle Architects, a Long Beach-based firm, designed the contemporary low-rise structure.
