A pair of early 20th century houses in East Hollywood could make way for a multifamily residential development, per a plan submitted earlier this month to the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed project, which would rise at 608-612 N. Serrano Avenue, calls for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 22 three- and four-bedroom apartments above 23 parking spaces on a single subterranean level.

Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities development incentives, permitting increased floor area, density, and height, as well as relief from minimum setback and parking requirements.  Three apartments would be reserved as deed-restricted affordable housing in exchange for the bonuses.

Warren Techentin Architecture is designing the proposed podium-type building, which would feature a facade of blue-colored stucco.

City records list the entity behind the proposed project as the Playa Vista-based entity DAMH Serrano LLC, which is managed by Anish Singla.

The two houses were sold in September 2020 for a combined sum of just over $2 million, according to Los Angeles County Assessor Records.

The development site is located one block south of Melrose Avenue, where a larger mixed-use apartment building - also designed by Warren Techentin Architecture - is currently under construction.
