The project, submitted to the City of Los Angeles in late 2020 for review, would rise from a roughly 28,000-square-foot property located at 736-738 E. Vernon Avenue. Project applicant Farid Mir, through the entity CLS Vernon, LLC, has proposed the construction of a four-story building containing 48 one- and two-bedroom apartments above 54 parking stalls in a street-level garage.
The proposed apartment complex faced a Planning Commission hearing due to a requested conditional use permit and density bonus to permit a larger building that would be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, Mir would be required to set aside 13 of the apartments would be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing at the very low-income level.
Synchronis is designing 736 Vernon development, which is depicted in a conceptual rendering with a modern look and an exterior of metal, stucco, and concrete.
