At its meeting yesterday, the Los Angeles City Council upheld the approval of a proposed multifamily residential development at 2456-2460 S. Purdue Avenue, rejecting calls from a neighboring homeowner to strip the project of entitlements.

The proposed development from Amir Mehdizadeh of Beverly Hills-based Camden Holdings, LLC, slated to replace two single-family homes, calls for the construction of a five-story building featuring 27 apartments above a single level of subterranean parking

Project entitlements issued in July 2022 by the Planning Department use Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit increased floor area and density compared to the property's base zoning rights. In exchange, three apartments are to be set aside for rent as extremely low-income affordable housing.

Bittoni Architects is designing 2460 Purdue, which is depicted in a rendering as a contemporary low-rise structure centered on an open-air atrium. Other planned features include a recreation room, a central courtyard, a gym, and a rooftop deck.

The appellant, Kathryn Schorr, is the owner of a property located on the opposite side of Purdue Avenue. Schorr, who unsuccessfully appealed the project to the City Planning Commission last year,  has continued to argue that the project should not have been eligible for the approved development incentives, and reiterated a call for the Planning Department to conduct a full environmental impact report.
