Six-story building could be coming to Westwood Boulevard
By Dolores Quintana
A developer wants to replace a Westwood furniture store with a six-story, 57-unit apartment building.
Developer David Safai is seeking approval to demolish the furniture rental store at 2268 S. Westwood Boulevard as reported by Urbanize Los Angeles. The building that would replace the former space is a 57 unit, six-story building with an underground parking lot that would have 41 parking spaces.
Safai is seeking Transit Oriented Communities incentives by reserving six of the potential apartments as extremely low-income level affordable housing, restricted by deed. If granted, those incentives would allow the developer to set aside the usual zoning limits for density, floor area and the height of the building.
The potential new apartment building is being designed by Kevin Tsai Architecture and would include a recreation room for tenants on the ground floor and terrace decks to expand the amenity space for tenants since the building will also be lower on its east side to not interfere with the views of the local neighborhood. The design is the modern podium style of building, made of cement, stucco, metal and wood.
