A vacant building in Pacific Palisades that was once occupied by a Jack in the Box restaurant could be redeveloped with a mixed-use apartment building, according to an environmental report published by the City of Los Angeles.

The nearly 15,000-square-foot property, located at 17346 Sunset Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a five-story building featuring 40 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments, 2,900 square feet of ground-floor retail uses, and 49 parking spaces.  Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives - increases to height and allowable floor area - in exchange for setting aside four residential units for very low-income households.

The project, designed by Farzin Maly, would consist of a contemporary low-rise structure capped by a series of rooftop decks.  A central courtyard is also planned at the building's second level.

Applicant California Food Managers, LLC - whose principals include Beverly Hills investors Michael Aminpour, Dan Ashoori, and Jack Farshi - expect construction of 17346 Sunset to occur over approximately 16 months.  A groundbreaking date is not stated in the environmental report.

Just north across Sunset Boulevard, developer Geoff Palmer has built a similar residential development consisting of 29 units on a hillside property.
