A non-profit developer is looking to replace an auto body repair shop in Hollywood with affordable housing.

Yesterday, EAH Housing filed submitted an application to the Department of City Planning for the construction of a 50-unit apartment complex at 843-849 N. La Brea Avenue.  The project, which is pursuing entitlements with Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives, would be reserved for low-income families.

A case filing indicates that the proposed development would be called the Pointe on La Brea, similar to another EAH development planned at the corner of 76th Street and Vermont Avenue in South Los Angeles.

The Hollywood project site would rise just south of the intersection of La Brea and Willoughby Avenue, where CIM Group is in the process of building out multiple ground-up developments.  This includes a mixed-use apartment complex at 904 N. La Brea and a 67,000-square-foot office building at Sycamore and Romaine Avenues that has been leased to the radio company SiriusXM.

Across the street, construction was completed in 2016 for another apartment building at La Brea and Willoughby with a ground-floor Sprouts Farmers Market.
