Development continues along Santa Monica Boulevard
By Sam Catanzaro
A developer wants to replace a largely-vacant housing complex adjacent to Century City with over 60 new units, some of which may be affordable, the latest in a flurry of development in the area.
The developer, listed in Los Angeles Department of City Planning records as Parviz Parvizyar of Coffee Tree Vacaville LLC, has submitted plans to demolish six existing structures on three separate lots on the 10460 block of Santa Monica Boulevard and construct a six-story, 68-unit multi-family building with 2.5 half levels of subterranean parking.
In addition, the developer is requesting entitlements including Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives permitting for an increase in height to 68 feet and a reduction in necessary open space. The developer did not include details about the number of affordable housing units in their application to City Planning.
This is the latest in a string of projects popping up in the area including a five-story mix-use development project slated across the street on Santa Monica Boulevard and a 120-unit, seven-story apartment building planned for the nearby corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Beverly Glenn Boulevard.
