A mixed-use development is on the way to Westwood Blvd, on a site just north of Santa Monica Blvd.  Here are the details from the Department of City Planning:

1777 S WESTWOOD BLVD 90024

DEMOLITION OF A (E) RETAIL CENTER AND CONSTRUCTION OF A (N) MIXED-USE RESIDENTIAL PROJECT CONSISTING OF 71 RESIDENTIAL UNITS, A CHILDCARE FACILITY AND 6,237 SQ FT OF GROUND FLOOR COMMERCIAL

I'm sure a lot of drivers will decry adding more density to traffic congested Westwood Blvd, especially with the full Purple Line extension still on the distant horizon.  However, this is a very walkable neighborhood with a wide variety of stores and restaurants located in close proximity.  You can leave the Volvo at home more often when there's a grocery store across the street.

On July 24, the Central Area Planning Commission is scheduled to consider an appeal of a proposed small lot subdivision across the street from Barnsdall Park. The project, located at 4765-4773 Hollywood Boulevard, calls for demolishing an existing commercial building and parking lot to make way for the construction of 18 single-family residences.  The three-story buildings would offer floor plans between 1,794 and 2,969 square feet, each featuring a two-car garage.
