A mid-century fourplex located just east of Vermont Avenue in Koreatown is up for redevelopment with a larger multifamily residential building, according to an application submitted this month to the L.A. Department of City Planning.

Kamran Tavakoli and Morad Harouni, listed as the owners and applicants behind the project at 2811 W. San Marino Street, are seeking city approvals for the construction of a new seven-story building which would feature 36 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above a two-level, 27-car subterranean parking garage.

Requested project entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a larger structure than would otherwise be allowed by the property's base zoning. In exchange four of the new apartments would be set aside for rent as extremely low-income affordable housing.

California Development & Design is designing 2811 San Marino, which is portrayed in a series of renderings a contemporary low-rise structure capped by a rooftop amenity deck - similar to the firm's other Los Angeles projects.

The project follows a handful of similar mixed-use and multifamily residential developments in the surrounding neighborhood, including a 193-unit complex from Jamison Services which opened at Vermont Avenue and James M. Wood Boulevard in 2021, as well as a 67-unit development now rising at 905 S. Vermont Avenue.
