In Beverly Grove, a stretch previously developed with commercial buildings and institutions has been cleared for the construction of a new senior housing complex.

The project, which comes from local real estate firm Black Equities Group, is located at 8070 W. Beverly Boulevard, and occupies the south side of the street between Crescent Heights Boulevard to the west and Laurel Avenue to the east. Plans approved by the City of Los Angeles will permit the construction of a seven-story building featuring 80 dwelling units and 20 guest rooms.

As an eldercare facility, the project is required to devote 75 percent of its floor area to assisted living and senior independent housing, with the remainder set aside as memory care units for residents suffering from dementia.

VTBS Architects is designing 8070 Beverly, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary building clad in smooth white stucco accented with wood panels. The building, in addition to senior housing, would include approximately 7,000 square feet of ground-floor medical offices and a 6,000-square-foot synagogue, creating a new home for Congregation Beth Israel, which previously occupied the site.

The 8070 Beverly property sits just down the street from the proposed sites of two as-yet unbuilt projects: a mixed-use apartment complex at 8000 Beverly and the Edin Park food hall at 7967 Beverly.

Black Equities, which is headquartered in Beverly Hills, is also behind plans for a mixed-use housing development at 6435 Wilshire Boulevard..
