State Clearinghouse Number: 2016031029
Project Addresses: 1324-1342 W. 5th Street, 1101-1135 W. 6th Street, and 517-521 S. Bixel Street Los Angeles, California 90017
Community Plan: Westlake
Council District: 1
Project Description: The project involves the demolition of the existing structures on-site, which includes a three-level parking structure, one five-story commercial office and medical office building, and one four-story commercial office and medical office building, for the development of a residential and commercial mixed-use project. The Proposed Project would consist of the construction of two buildings (North Building and South Building) that would be connected by a footbridge spanning above the adjacent alleyway. The North Building would include 142 apartment units within seven levels and would front 5th Street. The South Building would include 22,000 square feet (sf) of ground-floor retail and 227 apartment units within six levels above the ground-floor retail and would front both 6th Street and Bixel Street. The Proposed Project would have a total of 369 residential apartment units and approximately 22,000 sf of ground-floor commercial space. The ground-floor commercial space may include retail, restaurant, coffee shop uses, and/or other uses permitted by the Central City West Specific Plan (“CCWSP”). The unit mix would include 193 studio units, 96 one-bedroom units, 56 two-bedroom units, and 24 three-bedroom units of varying sizes and configurations. Both buildings include seven stories above grade and two levels of subterranean parking. The elevation across the Project Site increases from south to north and west to east. The Proposed Project would provide required on-site vehicle and bicycle parking spaces pursuant to the LAMC. Open space courtyards and landscaping features are proposed throughout the Project Site which would include 16,075 sf of open space within the North Building property and 24,600 sf of open space within the South Building property for a total of 40,675 sf of open space on-site. In total, the Project would contain approximately 348,431 sf of floor area.
