The owner of a 1920s apartment complex located just north of Hollywood Boulevard has filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to redevelop the property with a larger mixed-use building.

The project, submitted yesterday to the Department of City Planning, calls for razing 18 existing units to allow for the construction of a seven-story structure containing 68 rental apartments above 3,371 square feet of ground-floor retail uses and parking for 39 vehicles.

As currently comprised, the proposed guidelines relies on the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines to allow for an increase in allowable density.  The guidelines allow for relief from certain zoning restrictions to projects that include affordable housing.

The applicant has also requested a conditional use permit to allow for commercial uses in a residential zone.

Ownership records link the approximatley 16,300-square-foot property to an entity called NBK, LLC.

The development site is located immediately north of the parking lot where entrepreneur Adolfo Suaya is pursuing the development of a 133-room hotel.
