Another developer has turned to the incentives offered by the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines to upsize their project.

Last week, Downtown-based real estate investment firm Zackary Brothers submitted a new application to construct a mixed-use development at 1855 Westwood Boulevard.  A case filing with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning describes the project as a six-story building featuring 60 apartments - including six units of extremely low-income affordable housing - atop a 2.5-level subterranean parking structure.

The new filing comes just over four years after Zackary Brothers initiated entitlements for a four-story, 33-unit development at the same property, which is currently improved with an automobile repair business.  The revised plan makes use of TOC incentives in exchange for providing affordable housing, for which the project is eligible because it is located in close proximity to high-frequency bus service.

Additional details regarding the proposed development are unclear based on the case filing.

A handful of similar developments are in the works for Westwood Boulevard to the south, including a proposed 77-unit building that was recently considered by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission.
