A fourplex and a triplex completed just north of Santa Monica Boulevard in Westwood could make way for a larger apartment complex, according to an application recently submitted to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
David Hanasab, a local real estate investor who owns the two properties located at 10605-10613 W. Eastborne Avenue, is seeking city entitlements to permit the demolition of both existing buildings to make way for the construction a new five-story edifice featuring 28 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above a two-level subterranean parking garage.
Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, allowing for a taller building with greater density than otherwise allowed by zoning rules. In exchange for the incentives, three of the new apartments are to be set aside as extremely low-income affordable housing for a period of 55 years after completion.
Mika Design Group is designing the Eastborne apartments, with Robert James Taylor Architects serving as architect of record. Renderings depict the finished product as a Mediterranean-style building with a rooftop deck and a rear yard.
The development site sits roughly one mile west of Century City, and follows similar multifamily buildings now taking shape along Santa Monica Boulevard.
Hanasab, the applicant, is also behind new apartment projects in Sawtelle and Larchmont.
