ENV-2016-3743-EIR 2017081039


Project Address:  1546 N. Argyle Avenue and 6224 W. Selma Avenue, Los Angeles, CA  90028

Community Plan Area:  Hollywood

Council District:  13—O’Farrell

Project Description:  The Project proposes to develop a new mixed-use project on a 1.1-acre site located within the Hollywood community of the City of Los Angeles.  The Project includes 276 residential units, 13 (5 percent of the Project Site’s base density) of which would be restricted to Very Low Income households; up to 24,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial retail and restaurant uses; and up to 412 vehicle parking spaces.  Alternatively, an up to 27,000-square-foot grocery store could be constructed in lieu of the proposed retail and restaurant uses.  The proposed uses would be located within a seven-story building containing a ground-floor level with a mezzanine and six residential levels, above four subterranean parking levels.  The proposed building would contain up to 260,250 square feet of floor area.  To provide for the new uses, the approximately 61,816 square feet of existing commercial uses in six buildings and associated surface parking areas would be demolished.


Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project would result in significant and unavoidable impacts related to:  on-site construction noise and on- and off-site construction vibration (related to human annoyance), as well as cumulative impacts with respect to on- and off-site construction noise and on- and off-site construction vibration (related to human annoyance).  All other potential impacts would be less than significant or mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
