Two years after clearing away West L.A.'s former Dolores Restaurant, Wiseman Residential is preparing to begin construction on a residential-retail complex in its place.

The project site, located at 11407 Santa Monica Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a five-story building featuring 51 residential units and 1,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  Plans call for a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units - including four which would be set aside as affordable housing - as well as a roof garden and basement parking for 88 vehicles.

Uriu & Associates, which frequently works with Wiseman, is designing the project.

A handful of similar developments are now planned or underway to the south along Sawtelle Boulevard.

10-Story Apartment Building Proposed at 12th & Grand

A 37-story tower had previously been pitched for the property.

Three years after bursting on the scene with plans for a high-rise development near Staples Center, the local subsidiary of a Chinese real estate firm has instead opted for a more modest project in South Park.

Earlier today, City Century submitted an application to the L.A. Department of City Planning for the construction of a 10-story building at 1201 S.
