The project, which would rise at the southeast corner of New Avenue and Whitmore Street, calls for the construction of 63 two- and three-bedroom dwellings accompanied by parking for 166 vehicles.

San Marino-based architecture firm FXA is designing the proposed development, called the Whitmore Villas, which would consist of 11 separate two-story buildings.  Architectural plans depict a series of Spanish Colonial Revival style structures arranged around a network of private strees, paseos, and green spaces.

Los Angeles County Assessor's records indicate that the owner of the project site is Newport Beach-based Greenstate Holdings, Inc., which acquired the property for $12 million in 2017.
