Council District: 13 - O'Farrell
State Clearinghouse Number: 2017061075
Community Plan Areas: Hollywood Community Plan, Vermont/Western Station Neighborhood Area Specific Plan

Project Description:The Project proposes 735 multi-family residential units and up to 95,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial uses, including market/retail and restaurant uses. The proposed uses would be provided within four buildings that would be up to six stories with a maximum height of 75 feet. The proposed uses would be supported by 1,409 vehicle parking spaces that would be distributed throughout the Project Site in two subterranean parking levels and in one at grade parking level. As required by the Specific Plan, 387 bicycle parking spaces would be provided within the Project Site and on adjacent sidewalks. The Project would include residential lobbies and leasing offices, pools, spas, and other recreational facilities. In addition, the Project would meet the required open space area as set forth by the Los Angeles Municipal Code and Specific Plan by providing approximately 91,606 square feet of open space, including landscaped courtyards, a public plaza fronting Sunset Boulevard, Western Avenue, and landscaped paseos at the ground level that would be publicly accessible from Sunset Boulevard. Overall, the Project would remove approximately 100,796 square feet of existing floor area and construct up to 882,246 square feet of new floor area, resulting in an increase of 781,450 square feet of net new floor area within the Project Site. The Floor Area Ratio (FAR) on the Project Site would be a maximum of 3:1.
