An automobile repair garage in Hollywood could make way for multifamily housing.

The proposed development, submitted in July to the Los Angeles Planning Department, would rise from a property located at 5600 W. Franklin Avenue.  Plans call for the construction of a five-story building featuring 41 apartments above parking for 60 vehicles.

Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities incentives permitting reductions to require on-site open space and side-yard setbacks, as well as increased height.  In exchange, six apartments would be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing at the very low-income level.

A rendering of the project, which is designed by West Pacifica Design, displays a contemporary low-rise building lined with balconies.

City records list the project's developer as Beverly Hills investor Ilan Gorodezki.

The project site is located one block west of the intersection of Franklin and Western Avenues, where a shuttered gas station is slated to make way for a larger apartment complex with ground-floor retail space.
