A collection of small residential buildings near the intersection of La Cienega and Venice Boulevards in Mid-City are up for redevelopment with affordable housing through the Mayor's Executive Directive 1.

The project, proposed by co-applicants Kourosh Zoghi and David Hanasab of Cullen Investments 26, LLC and Cullen Place 26, LLC, would rise from a property at 2625 Cullen Street, replacing five existing homes. Plans call for the construction of a new six-story building featuring 70 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, as well as at-grade parking for 26 vehicles.

According to findings included with the project application, all of the apartments save for a single manager's unit would be reserved for low- and moderate-income households. That income restriction makes the project eligible for density bonus incentives permitting a larger building than allowed by zoning rules.

Warren Techentin Architecture is designing the contemporary low-rise development.

The project site, a dead-end street accessible from La Cienega, sits just north of the commercial corridor of Washington Boulevard in Culver City and slightly over a half-mile north of Metro's La Cienega/Jefferson Station.
