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.

Checking in on the Slow-Moving 1133 Hope Condo Tower

The 28-story tower broke ground in March 2017.

Slowly but surely, the concrete frame of 1133 Hope Street rises in South Park. The 28-story tower, located just east of Metro's Pico Station, will feature 200 residential units above 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail uses and a parking podium upon completion.  Plans for the mixed-use project dated back to 2005, when the Canadian development firm Amacon initially submitted plans for a 35-story building on the site.
