Building a Six-Story Apartment Complex in the Heart of Westwood?

39-unit development proposed for Strathmore Drive

By Sam Catanzaro

A Georgia-based developer wants to build a six-story apartment complex in the heart of Westwood.

On December 2, the Westwood Community Design Review Board will get a first look at a six-story, 39-unit apartment complex proposed for 10915 Strathmore Drive. The property is located just blocks from the UCLA campus and the Georgia-based developer Landmark Properties has a track-record in projects geared towards student housing.

Plans call for 39 units even though North Westwood Village Community Plan Specific Plan density rules limit the project to 23 apartments based on the property size. Therefore the developer is asking for the 67 percent density bonus by providing six units for very-low-income residents. The apartment complex–dubbed The Standard at Los Angeles–would include a mix of one-, three-, four- and five-bedroom apartments.

The apartments would be built atop a subterranean parking garage with 41 spaces with no guest parking. This means that tenants with more than one vehicle will have to park on the street as the proposal calls for 158 bedrooms with 184 beds within the 39 units.

Landmarks Properties–based in Athens, Georgia– is a property management and development company that is the nation’s top developer of student housing five years running. The firm will have to first get approval from the Los Angeles City Planning Commission before proceeding with the Westwood Village project.
