Just north of the US-101 freeway in Hollywood, Grubb Properties continues to add to its portfolio of new multifamily residential developments in the City of Los Angeles.

The Link Apartments Solana, announced late last year, would rise from a vacant corner lot at 1353 N. Western Avenue that last sold in mid-2020 for $3.5 million. Plans now under review by Department of Building and Safety would permit the construction of a new seven-story building featuring 70 apartments above 2,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Urban Architecture Lab is designing the Solana project, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary podium-type building consisting of wood-frame construction above a concrete base. Planned amenities include a podium-level pool deck, a rooftop amenity space, and a fitness center.

The project is one of five new developments that North Carolina-based Grubb Properties announced last year as part of its entrance into the L.A. market, following projects which have already been announced for the Koreatown, Hollywood, and North Hollywood communities. Per a news release, all five projects are being funded using Opportunity Zone funds, and are being developed in partnership with Blackridge Ventures and Allied Urban.

The Solana site sits just south of the busy intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Western Avenue, following other new multifamily residential projects now in planning or construction. Holland Partner Group is currently building a 185-unit complex one block to the west, while a 735-unit mixed-use project moves through the approval process at 5420 Sunset Boulevard.
