An early 1930s apartment building near the intersection of Pico and La Cienega Boulevards could be up for redevelopment, per an application submitted earlier this month to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
The proposed project, slated for a single parcel located at 8521 W. Horner Street, calls for the construction of a new five-story structure featuring 29 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above a two-level, 33-car subterranean parking garage.
Project applicant Horner Property, LLC, a Beverly Hills-based entity managed by Shahrokh Zarrin, is seeking the approval of density bonus incentives permitting a larger structure than allowed by local zoning regulations. In exchange, six of the new apartments would be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing at the very low-income level.
California Development and Design is serving as the architect for the project, which is depicted as a contemporary low-rise structure with a setback above its third floor. Plans show a landscaped rooftop amenity deck, as well as a recreation room within the building's interior.
The project site sits a short walk south of a stretch of commercial buildings at 6116-6144 Pico Boulevard, where a larger mixed-use project featuring 125 apartments and ground-floor retail space is in the works.
