A pair of early 1920s commercial buildings in Westlake could make way for a new multifamily residential development, according to plans submitted in August to the City of Los Angeles.

The project, which would rise at the southwest corner of 7th Street and Rampart Boulevard, calls for the construction of a seven-story edifice featuring 55 residential units.  Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, indicating that a percentage of the proposed apartments would be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing.

City records list the project's developer as an entity affiliated with Roussin Capital Group and its architect as KSK Design.

Renderings posted to a landing page on the Roussin Capital website depict a contemporary low-rise building lined with street-fronting retail space.

The development site is located east across Hoover Street from an empty lot at 2806 W. 7th Street, where the City of Los Angeles has approved the construction of a larger 166-unit mixed-use complex.

Two blocks north at the intersection of Hoover and Wilshire Boulevard, the 25-story Kurve apartment tower is on pace for completion in 2021.
