A sustainable communities environmental assessment published by the L.A. Department of City Planning reveals a new look for a proposed multifamily residential development in Hollywood.

The proposed project, submitted to the City of Los Angeles for review in November 2020, would replace an automobile repair shop one block north of Hollywood/Western Station at 5600 W. Franklin Avenue. Plans call for the construction of a new four-story building featuring 41 studio and one-bedroom apartments above parking for 41 vehicles.

Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, granting waivers from certain zoning rules due to the site's location near high-frequency transit corridors.  In exchange, five of the proposed apartments would be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Kamran Tabrizi Architect & Associates is designing, which would have an exterior of smooth stucco and brick.

Construction is expected to occur over a 20-month period, concluding in 2025.

City records list the project's developer as Beverly Hills investor Ilan Gorodezki.

The project site is located one block west of the intersection of Franklin and Western Avenues, where a shuttered gas station has been redeveloped with a larger apartment complex lined with ground-floor retail space. To the south at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue, new affordable housing is taking shape within the historic Hollywood Western Building and on an adjoining property.
