A pair of mixed-use buildings will replace surface parking lots near Santa Monica Beach, according to a draft environmental impact report published last week by the City of Santa Monica.

The proposed developments, located at 1828 Ocean Avenue and 1921 Ocean Front Walk, would provide a mix of market rate and affordable housing, in addition to pedestrian-oriented commercial uses.

At 1828 Ocean Avenue, plans call for the removal of an existing 127-car parking lot that serves Hotel Casa del Mar to construct a 47-foot-tall building which would contain 83 dwelling units and 2,000 square feet of street-level commercial space.  Plans call for 277 parking spaces in a semi-subterranean garage - including replacement parking for the hotel.

Koning Eizenberg Architecture is designing the project, which would appear as a three-story structure fronting Ocean and a five-story building towards the beach due to the sloping topography of the development site.

One block south at 1921 Ocean Front Walk, plans call for another five-story building that would contain 22 dwelling units atop 4,000 square feet of street-level retail and restaurant uses.  The second building would contain 62 parking spaces in a partially-underground garage.

Koning Eizenberg Architecture is also designing 1921 Ocean Front Walk.

The two projects would provide a total of 16 deed-restricted affordable housing units.

Depending on the permitting process, the projects could break ground as soon as Fall 2018.  Completion would occur in Summer 2020.

In Inglewood, a local developer has filed plans to construct townhomes just west of La Brea Avenue. The proposed development, slated for an L-shaped property at 113-133 W. Plymouth Street, would replace 11 existing single-family residences with 20 three-story townhomes above a basement parking garage.
