A nondescript commercial building just north of the former Westside Pavilion could be razed and redeveloped with housing, according to an application submitted to the L.A. Department of City Planning.
The project, slated for a single parcel located at 2330 S. Westwood Boulevard, calls for razing the existing two-story building to make way for a new four-story edifice featuring 18 studio and two-bedroom apartments above parking for nine vehicles.
Requested approvals include Transit Oriented Communities development incentives to permit a larger building than otherwise allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, two of the new apartments are to be set aside as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.
Plus Architects is designing contemporary low-rise structure, which would be clad in stucco and metal panels. Renderings show cantilevered balconies on the exterior, as well as a community room at the ground floor.
City records list the project applicant Jubin Sharifi of 2330 Westwood, LLC.
The proposed development sits directly north of a similar mixed-use project built at 2336 S. Westwood Boulevard, and a short walk from the new Google office campus built into the shell of the shuttered Westside Pavilion.
