Somehow, someway, the City of Beverly Hills has managed to right the ship with its housing element. On March 19, city officials submitted a final revised version of the thrice-rejected plan to the California Department of Housing and Community Development for certification, having already received written assurance that this time will be different.

But the reign of the Builder's Remedy has now come to an end in Beverly Hills, a handful more applications managed to make it through the door before it closed, as detailed in the latest update to the city's Active Projects. Outside of the new 20-story building Crescent Heights has in the works for Burton Way, the new filings since mid-December of 2023 are as follows:

8822-8826 W. Olympic Boulevard

On December 19, applicant Amged, LLC submitted plans to the city seeking approvals for the construction of a nine-story, 30-unit mixed-use building at 8822-8826 W. Olympic Boulevard, replacing a single-story commercial building. The applicant entity is managed by Michael Nourmand and Omid Korshidi, the former a real estate broker and the latter an attorney.

A half-mile to the north near at the intersection of Robertson and Wilshire Boulevards, three projects are in the works for neighboring sites.

8800 and 8822 Wilshire Boulevard

King's Arch, Inc., a Beverly Hills-based real estate firm, is planning a pair of 12-story buildings on adjacent sites at 8800 and 8822 Wilshire Boulevard. The two developments, which would sit on the south side of Wilshire between Robertson to the east and Clark Drive to the west, would be mixed-use structures featuring 116 and 112 dwelling units respectively. A project application also indicates that both would include a hotel component, although the exact number of rooms is not specified.

8833 Wilshire Boulevard

Across the street, an entity linked to Century City-based Topa Management, LLC has more modest plans for a corner site at 8833 Wilshire Boulevard. There, plans call for redeveloping a single-story building with a new six-story mixed-use structure featuring 102 apartments and commercial uses.

145 S. Rodeo Drive

Last year, Wilshire Rodeo Company, LLC filed an application to build a 17-story, 56-unit apartment tower at 145 S. Rodeo Drive. A subsequent project submitted to the city for review in February dials that plan back slightly - the second application would see the construction a shorter 15-story tower with just 30 dwellings.

8364-8370 Wilshire Boulevard

The latest and largest application, submitted for a site near the future Wilshire/La Cienega Subway station at 8364-8370 Wilshire Boulevard, Lalezary, LLC, an entity managed by attorney Shawn Lalezary. The project calls for the construction of a mixed-use development consisting of a 31-story tower featuring 225 residential units. A building at that height would be comparable in scale to the towers located just east within Los Angeles city limits, or even the new condominium towers taking shape at the One Beverly Hills development.
