A small warehouse in Westlake currently used for tire sales could make way for a multifamily residential development, per an application filed earlier this month with the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed project, slated for the northwest corner of Hoover Street and Leeward Avenue, calls for demolishing a single-story brick structure to make way for a new building featuring 38 residential units.  Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, for which the project would set aside four apartments as affordable housing.

City records list the project applicant as Hoover 719, LLC.  Albert Ganjian is listed as the entity's manager.

The height of the proposed development is not specified.

A similar six-story development is planned for the opposite side of Hoover Street, and around the corner on 7th Street, a 158-unit apartment complex is slated for a vacant lot.
