Located on the north side of Santa Monica between Orange Drive and Mansfield Avenue, the project consists of a seven-story edifice which will feature 231 apartments above 15,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Parking for 390 vehicles will be located in subterranean levels below the building.
Entitlements for the project include density bonus incentives to permit a larger building than allowed under zoning rules. In exchange, Onni is required to set aside 15 of the apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing at the very-low-income level.
RC Architecture is designing the podium-type building, which will be clad in a combination of concrete and stucco. Cascading terrace decks oriented toward the rear property line will provide a height transition to the lower-scaled neighborhood to the north, while also creating a series amenity decks and a courtyard swimming pool.
Onni Group, which has built a series of Downtown apartment towers over the past decade, is also behind plans for a 14-story office building at Hollywood and Cahuenga Boulevards and 21-story apartment tower on Vine Street. The company's portfolio also includes proposed and under-construction developments in Mid-Wilshire, Glendale, and Long Beach.
The project is the latest in mixed-use development to arrive in southwest Hollywood, following the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Anita May Rosenstein Campus, AvalonBay Communities' AVA Hollywood apartments, and an under-construction apartment complex from Massachi located next door on Orange Drive.
