In Hollywood, the wood framing is sprouting at the site of a mixed-use apartment complex from Jade Enterprises at the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue.

The project, which replaced a gas station at 7901 W. Sunset Boulevard, will consist of a seven-story structure featuring 62 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments at completion. Plans also call for approximately 6,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking for 88 vehicles.

Project entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, permitting a larger building with more housing than zoning rules would have otherwise allowed. In exchange, five of the new apartments are to be set aside for rent as extremely low-income affordable housing for a period of 55 years.

Next Architecture is designing the project, which is named Skyview Sunset. Renderings depict the finished product as a contemporary low-rise complex clad in plaster, fiber cement siding, and precast concrete. Floor plans show that the building would feature amenity decks at its third and roof levels.

The development site is located three blocks east of the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Crescent Heights Boulevard, where developer Townscape Partners is looking to sell a site entitled for a controversial housing and retail complex designed by Frank Gehry.

Likewise, an application was recently filed with the Planning Department to redevelop a Bank of America Branch a short distance east at 7800 Sunset Boulevard with a similar mixed-use project featuring 75 apartments and retail.

Jade Enterprises is also behind larger mixed-use projects planned or underway in Downtown neighborhoods such as South Park, the Fashion District, the Arts District, and City West, as well as projects outside of the City of Los Angeles in Pasadena, and Marina del Rey.
