A year-and-a-half after breaking ground in Venice, a mixed-use apartment complex from Wiseman Residential is finally approaching street level.

The project, which replaced an auto body repair shop at 1808-1816 S. Lincoln Boulevard, is approved for the construction of a five-story building featuring 50 apartments above 4,734 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and subterranean parking for 42 vehicles.

Entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, allowing a larger building than normally permitted by zoning rules. In exchange, Wiseman will be required to set aside five of the studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments as deed-restrict affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Reed Architectural Group is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which architectural plans show will include a gym, a rooftop deck, and a rear yard. The low-rise building will gradually step down in height along the eastern property line, creating a series of terrace decks.

Wiseman is also developing a 77-unit apartment complex not far away on Venice Boulevard.
