Just over one year after commencing construction at 10801 W. Venice Boulevard, wood framing is nearing its peak at a new mixed-use apartment complex in Palms.

The project, which replaces a commercial building at the northwest corner of Venice Boulevard and Glendon Avenue, will eventually consist of a six-story structure containing 85 apartments above ground-floor commercial space and a two-level subterranean parking garage.

Approved plans are designed using Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a larger building than normally allowed by zoning. In exchange, a portion of the new apartments must be set aside for rent as affordable housing upon completion.

Property records indicate that the site is owned by Reza Amin through the entity Venice Adventures, LLC. Amin previously sought to build a smaller project with 63 apartments above ground-floor commercial space using density bonus incentives in 2016, but later revised the project using the Transit Oriented Communities incentives.

Plus Architects is designing the Venice Glendon development, which is shown as a contemporary low-rise structure in renderings posted to the firm's website. Plans call for cantilevered, sloping balconies and a rooftop amenity deck.

The project joins a handful of similar housing and retail developments now taking shape along the Venice Boulevard, including a proposed apartment complex from Wiseman Residential and a recently-completed building from California Landmark Group.
