At the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Hollywood, the concrete podium of a new mixed-use apartment building from Jade Enterprises is on the rise.

The project at 7901 W. Sunset Boulevard, which replaced a gas station, will eventually consist of a seven-story structure featuring 62 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above roughly 6,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking for 88 vehicles.

Jade Enterprises secured approvals for the site using Transit Oriented Communities development incentives to permit a larger, denser building than zoning rules would have otherwise allowed. In exchange, five of the new apartments are to be set aside for rent as extremely low-income affordable housing for a period of 55 years.

Next Architecture is designing the development, dubbed Skyview Sunset, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary low-rise complex clad in plaster, fiber cement siding, and precast concrete. Floor plans show that the building would feature amenity decks at its third and roof levels.

Jade Enterprises is also behind larger mixed-use projects planned or underway in Downtown neighborhoods such as South Park, the Fashion District, the Arts District, and City West, as well as projects outside of the City of Los Angeles in Pasadena, and Marina del Rey.

The development site is located three blocks east of the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Crescent Heights Boulevard, where developer Townscape Partners is looking to sell a site entitled for a controversial housing and retail complex designed by Frank Gehry.
