An auto repair garage located across the street from the CBS Studio Center in Studio City could be razed for multifamily housing and retail, according to an application recently submitted to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The proposed project, slated for a roughly 16,000-square-foot site at the southwest corner of Radford Avenue and Hoffman Street, calls for the construction of a new six-story edifice featuring 58 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above approximately 3,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  Parking for 81 vehicles would be located at-grade and in subterranean and podium levels.

Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, permitting increased height and a reduction to zoning-required on-site open space.  In exchange, six of the proposed apartments would be set aside as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Local architect Sam Aslanian is designing the apartment complex, which is labeled as Radford Place in conceptual renderings.  Architectural plans depict a contemporary podium-type building featuring a central courtyard and two amenity decks and a recreation room at the sixth floor.

City records list the project applicant and owner of the property as Rafi Kuyumjian of Tarzana.

The project joins a handful of new mixed-use buildings planned for properties flanking Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, including a 124-unit project approved last year at Arch Drive and a recently-announced 520-unit complex that would replace the Sportsmen's Lodge hotel.
