A truck rental facility and auto repair shop in North Hollywood are poised for redevelopment, following a meeting of the Los Angeles City Planning Commission.

On November 16, the Commission granted approval to developer Alan Kleinman of Elevado Group, who sought entitlements for a new mixed-use residential development at 5000 N. Vineland Avenue. The proposed project calls for the construction of a new seven-story building featuring 139 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above 2,855 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and semi-subterranean parking for 126 vehicles.

The Planning Commission hearing was held due to a request for a conditional use permit and off-menu density bonus incentives to permit a larger structure with more housing than would normally be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, 19 of the new apartments are to be set aside for rent as deed-restricted very low-income affordable housing.

Maly Architects is designing 5000 Vineland, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary podium-type building clad in painted stucco and wood siding. Plans show the building would incorporated two rooftop amenity decks and a pair of small courtyards.

The proposed development sits just over a half-mile southeast of Metro's North Hollywood Station, where surface parking lots are primed to make way for a high-rise complex, and along the future route of a new bus rapid transit line which would connect North Hollywood to Burbank, Glendale, and Pasadena.

Elevado Group, in addition to the new project on Vineland, is also behind a mixed-use project with 119 apartments and commercial space on the former site of Debbie Reynolds' dance studio in North Hollywood and a proposed 147-unit complex on Woodman Avenue in Van Nuys.
