A late 1920s commercial building in Hollywood which was recently designated a local historic landmark is set to be converted into housing, according to an application submitted to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Bolour Associates, listed as the owner of the two-story structure at 6464 W. Santa Monica Boulevard, is seeking city approvals for the adaptive reuse of the second floor as eight live/work apartments - each featuring one bedroom and dedicated work space. Plans also call for the creation of 5,625 square feet of retail space at the ground floor, replacing an existing theater.

Abramson Architects is designing the project, which will adhere to the Secretary of the Interior’s standards for rehabilitation of a historic structure, according to findings included with the entitlement application.

The building, which is part of a larger cluster of commercial structures dubbed "the Complex," was included in the City of Los Angeles list of Historic-Cultural Monument on December 1, 2023. The two-story structure is described as an "excellent example of streetcar-related commercial development in Hollywood," which also contributed to the development of Hollywood Theater Row.
