One block west of Metro's Vermont/Santa Monica Station in East Hollywood, Los Angeles-based Canfield Development is ready to begin work on its latest mixed-use apartment complex.

Late last year, the L.A. Department of Building and Safety issued construction permits for the company's proposed project at 4750 Santa Monica Boulevard. The new development, slated for a now-vacant site that was previously improved with a single-family home and a commercial building, calls for the construction of an eight-story edifice featuring 85 studio, one-, two- and four-bedroom apartments above 1,137 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 72 basement parking stalls.

Canfield secured entitlements for the site in 2021 through the Transit Oriented Communities program, which allows for a taller, denser apartment building than would typically be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, 10 of the new apartments are to be set aside for rent as extremely low-income affordable housing for a period of 55 years.

HBA is designing the 4750 Santa Monica, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary podium-type building clad in metal panels and painted cement plaster. The apartment complex would include on-site open spaces such as a central courtyard and a rooftop terrace.

A landing page on the Canfield website, which names the project New Hampshire for its north-south cross-street, projects a completion date in 2024.

The project site sits directly across the street from a site controlled by Metro and Little Tokyo Service Center, where a six-story, 187-unit affordable housing development is now under construction, and a short walk from another mixed-income development from Jamison Services now rising at 4632 W.
