Just south of the Pico-Robertson neighborhood's namesake intersection, a local investor has commenced work on a mixed-use apartment complex.

Construction underway at 1417-1429 S Robertson BoulevardUrbanize LA

The project, now under construction on a rectangular property at 1415-1429 S. Robertson Boulevard, will consist of a seven-story edifice featuring 64 apartments and a single accessory dwelling unit (making for a total of 65 residences) above ground-floor commercial space and a single level of subterranean parking.

While the project is being developed by-right, it is designed in accordance with the Transit Oriented Communities incentives, which permit relief from certain zoning provisions in exchange for the provision of on-site affordable housing. In the case of the Robertson Avenue project, plans call for six units to be set aside for rent at the extremely low-income level.

KFA Architecture is designing the project, which is portrayed in a renderings as a contemporary podium-type building wrapped with inset and cantilevered balconies, and capped with a rooftop deck.

Property records list the owner of the site as the Batmanghelich Trust. The land sold for approximately $1.27 million in 2004.

The development site sits directly across the street from a property located at 1434-1456 S. Robertson Boulevard, where city officials recently rejected a proposal to replace 12 apartments with a 131-room hotel.
