Yet another multifamily residential development could be coming to the West L.A - Sawtelle area.

Yesterday, plans were submitted to the City of Los Angeles to replace a car wash at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Federal Avenue with a five-story building featuring 100 apartments about two levels of parking.  Requested entitlements for the project include density bonus incentives for increased height and floor area, in exchange for setting aside nine residential units for very low-income households.

The project applicant is listed as Garrett Lee, President of Jamison Services, Inc.

A number of similar developments are planned or underway along Santa Monica between the 405 Freeway and Centinela Avenue.

Next-door to the car wash site, a strip mall is poised to make way for a six-story building featuring 99 apartments with ground-floor retail space, while the former site of a Vons supermarket at Santa Monica and Barrington Avenue is slated for an even larger 180-unit development.

Los Angeles-based developer CIM Group recently finished work on a 174-unit development at the site of a former car dealership at 11800 Santa Monica, and is now in construction at a second project across the street.
