A Goodwill retail store located not far from Barnsdall Park in Los Feliz could make way for new housing and commercial uses, according to an application submitted this month to the L.A. Department of City Planning.

The proposed project at 4579-4627 Hollywood Boulevard, filed by applicant Kristin Harrison on behalf of the Z Wayne Griffin Trust, is slated for a block-long property spanning from Rodney Drive to Lyman Place. Plans call for razing the existing building and parking lot, which were completed in 1999, clearing the way for the construction of a new four-story building featuring 181 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments atop more than 15,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and semi-subterranean parking for 208 vehicles.

Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives permitting a taller building with less parking than otherwise required by zoning rules. In exchange, 20 of the new apartments would be set aside for rent as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Warren Techentin Architecture is designing the Hollywood Boulevard apartments, which are portrayed in a rendering as a contemporary podium-type building with a sculpted roofline. The building would have a W-shaped footprint above the podium level, providing room for two courtyards and a pool deck. Plans also call for a community room, a recreation room, and additional outdoor spaces at the rooftop.

The proposed development is the latest in a recent string of projects near the busy intersection of Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards, following the recently-finished Luxium complex, which brought 202 apartments and retail to a neighboring site to the east. Next door to the Vista Theatre (now owned by director Quentin Tarantino), another property owner is planning a mixed-use project with 29 apartments.
