The Los Angeles planning department has approved a proposal to develop an eight-story, 137-unit mixed-use apartment project near the Hollywood / Highland Metro station, according to a determination letter posted by the city this month.
The project is being led by Michael Nazzal of Yorkwood LLC and will take shape at 6817 – 6831 Hawthorn Avenue, replacing a 25,000-square-foot parking lot across Hawthorn Avenue from Hollywood‘s El Capitan Theatre. Designed by Nadel Architects, the planned 95,587-square-foot development will rise to a maximum height of 97 feet.
Plans call for 54 studio apartments, 56 one-bedrooms, 20 two-bedrooms, and seven three-bedrooms above about 1,200 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. The project will also consist of 12,405 square feet of open space, including a pool deck, interior recreation rooms, and private balconies, plans show.
Approvals given this month allow for Tier-3 project incentives under the city’s transit-oriented communities program, including a two-story height increase. The developer will set aside 14 apartments for extremely low-income households in accordance with the TOC program.
The project will provide 150 automobile parking spaces across two subterranean levels of parking and a portion of the ground floor. It will also hold space for 106 bicycles.
