Earlier today, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission voted to approve a proposal to redevelop the site of service station at the Adams-Normandie neighborhood's namesake intersection with apartments.

In January 2023, local investor Amir Ohebsion submitted an application to the Planning Department to redevelop the site at 1724 W. Adams Boulevard. Plans call for the construction of a new five-story building featuring 90 one- and two-bedroom apartments above parking for 51 vehicles.

The project came before the Planning Commission due to its request for off-menu density bonus incentives permitting greater height and floor area than allowed by zoning rules. In exchange for the incentives, 10 of the new apartments are required to be set aside for rent as very low-income affordable housing.

John Kaliski Architects is designing the project, which is named the A+N Apartments for the intersection of Adams Boulevard and Normandie Avenue. The new building is portrayed in renderings as a contemporary podium-type structure clad in painted stucco and accented with wood siding. Plans show a lobby, a mail room, and a leasing offices at street level, as well as open space amenities such as a courtyard, a landscaped rear yard, a gym, and a recreation room.

The proposed project would rise roughly a half-mile west of the intersection of Adams and Vermont Avenue, where a similar project featuring housing and ground-floor commercial space was  completed in 2022.

Ohebsion and Kaliski are also behind plans for a similar 100-unit apartment building slated for a property at 3301 W. Beverly Boulevard in Westlake.
