Local developer Wiseman Residential will try its hands at a mixed-use apartment building in Venice, according to a filing earlier today with the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed development, which would replace an auto body repair shop at 1808-1816 S. Lincoln Boulevard, calls for the construction of a six-story building that would contain 44 residential units - including six apartments for very-low-income households - above 2,991 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

The project has requested density bonus incentives allowing for a height increase and reduced parking.

Additional details about the project are currently unclear.

Despite being one of Los Angeles' most desirable housing markets, new apartment buildings are a rarity in Venice.  Nonetheless, Wiseman joins a handful of other developers making attempts.  Similar projects are also in the works at 2452 Lincoln Boulevard and 1015 E. Venice Boulevard.
