A presentation given earlier this week to the Santa Monica Architectural Review Board provides a first look at the latest mixed-use development slated for Lincoln Boulevard. 

The latest project, which would replace a single-story retail building at 1427 Lincoln Boulevard, calls for the construction of a four-story edifice that would feature 15 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments - including two affordable units - with 1,933 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 13 parking spaces on a basement level.

William Adams Architects is designing 1427 Lincoln, which is described as a "modern infill project," with an exterior of corrugated metal and smooth stucco.  The would feature a second-level courtyard and a rooftop deck.

A staff report lists the project applicant as the Alhambra-based entity Lincoln Santa Monica, LLC.

No decision on the project is to be rendered at this point in time.  The proposed apartment building will be required to go before the Architectural Review Board again at a later date for final design review.

The project site sits across the street from a parking lot at 1430 Lincoln Boulevard, where prolific developer WS Communities has plans for a five-story, 100-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail.
