A collection of small residential and commercial buildings near Metro's Vermont/Beverly Station could make way for a mixed-use development, according to plans submitted yesterday to the City of Los Angeles.

The roughly 31,000-square-foot site, located at 3977 Beverly Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a mixed-use building featuring 67 residential units - including seven to be set aside for extremely low-income households - with 8,450 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  Requested entitlements, utilizing Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives, include increases in allowable height and floor area, as well as decreases in required parking and open space.

The project is being developed by 4D Development & Investment, as first reported by The Real Deal.  Renderings posted to the company's website depict a contemporary five-story structure which steps down in height toward the adjacent residential neighborhood to the north.

Additional details regarding the project are not stated in its case filing.

Three blocks east, a former car dealership adjacent to the Metro station is slated for a larger development featuring 490 apartments and ground-floor retail.
