The parking lot of media production center in Hollywood could be redeveloped with multifamily housing, according to an application recently submitted to the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed project - which would rise from a 1.26-acre site fronting Lodi Place, Lexington Avenue, and Gower Street - calls for the construction of five- and six-story buildings containing 169 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above 278 parking stalls on three subterranean levels.

Bijan & Associates is designing the housing complex, which is depicted renderings as with a contemporary look.  Architectural plans show that rooftop decks would cap both buildings, while a small courtyard area would be created between the new construction and the existing production center.

Construction of the proposed development is expected to occur in two phases, starting with a smaller building fronting Gower Street, followed by a larger structure at Lexington and Lodi.  A timeline for the project is not specified in its application.

The project's developer is listed as an entity affiliated with Amidi Group, a Redwood City-based real estate development firm.  The Planning Application brands the development as "1010 Hollywood," which is a nod to the company's properties in Downtown Los Angeles.  Amidi Group also owns the adjacent Hollywood Production Center.

The apartment complex would rise two blocks south of Sunset Gower Studios, where developer Hudson Pacific Properties is currently seeking approvals to build more than 460,000 square feet of office and production space.
