An auto body repair shop and two small commercial buildings located near the Grove could make way for a residential-retail complex.

Earlier today, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a mixed-use project at 8000-8014 W. 3rd Street in the Beverly Grove neighborhood.  Plans call for a 50-unit building - including five affordable apartments - with approximately 7,250 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

The project is proposed using density bonus incentives, with requests for a height increase to 61 feet and an increase in allowable floor area.

MVE + Partners is designing the contemporary five-story building, which will feature a rooftop amenity deck and glass balconies.

The proposed development would rise just west of Fairfax Avenue.  Additional details about the project are currently unclear.
