A staff report set for review at the April 27 meeting of the L.A. City Planning Commission unveils yet another proposal for multifamily housing from Brennen Hakimian Holdings.

The proposed project, slated for a site previously home to 13 residential units at 1000-1014 N. Alfred Street, would rise just south of West Hollywood city limits in Beverly Grove. Plans call for the construction of a new five-story building featuring 67 studio, one-, two-, three-, four-, five-, and six-bedroom apartments above 43 parking spaces in a single subterranean level.

Project entitlements include density bonus incentives to permit a larger building with more housing than would otherwise be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, plans call for six units of very low-income housing and one additional unit of low-income housing, serving as replacement housing in accordance with SB 8.

As with other Hakimiam projects, Warren Techentin Architecture is designing the building, which is portrayed in a rendering as a contemporary 56-foot-tall structure. Plans call for an O-shaped footprint, wrapping around a central courtyard, with multiple recreation rooms planned for the lower level of the building.

The project is faced with an appeal from Suzanne Zachary of SDZ Properties, LLC who requests that the Planning Commission should disallow the proposed apartment complex due to its scale relative to adjacent buildings, a perceived lack of on-site parking, and her expectations of increased traffic congestion on nearby streets. A staff report recommends that the appeal should be denied.

Hakimiam, in addition to the new Alfred Street development, is also working with Techentin on new mixed-use and multifamily residential buildings at multiple locations in Westwood and Cheviot Hills.

The Alfred Street project would rise just southeast of the intersection of Santa Monica and La Cienega Boulevards, where plans for a similar apartment complex were recently initiated with the City of Los Angeles.
