A draft environmental impact report published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning offers new details about Junction Gateway, an upcoming residential and retail development in northwest Silver Lake.

The proposed mixed-use complex from Los Angeles-based Frost/Chaddock Developers would consist of three separate buildigns at different sites along Sunset Boulevard.  In total, the project would encompass nearly 300 apartments - including 27 affordable housing units - and 17,000 square feet of pedestrian-oriented shops and restaurants.

4000 Sunset Boulevard

Site 1, a roughly .71-acre plot near the intersection of Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards, would be developed with a low-rise structure featuring 84 one- and two-bedroom apartments, including 9 dwelling which would be reserved as affordable housing.  Additional uses would include approximately 4,600 square feet of creative offices, a 123-car parking garage, residential amenities and 5,700 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  A representative of the developer has previously indicated that entitlements may allow for the building to also serve as a hotel.

Renderings portray a five-story structure, extending above a 1,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza.  The building would be clad with white and blue-colored exterior elements.

4100 Sunset Boulevard

The second Junction Gateway building, located north across the intersection at 4100 Sunset Boulevard, would include a total of 91 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, 8 of which would be maintained as affordable housing.  The five-story edifice would also feature 10,000 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space and 156 parking stalls in an underground garage.

4311 Sunset Boulevard

At 4311 Sunset Boulevard, plans call for the largest of thre three buildings, a red four-story structure featuring 122 lofts, studio apartments and one- and two-bedroom units above approximately 5,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and residential amenities.  The building would also feature 156 parking spaces in a subterranenan garage.

Construction of Junction Gateway would occur over approximately 27 months, although an exact groundbreaking date is not stated within the environmental report.  The project requires multiple discretionary approvals from the City of Los Angeles, including a site plan review and a density bonus compliance review.
