The Los Angeles planning department has given approvals to plans for a seven-story, 207-unit apartment project by Mapleton Properties at 10003 Washington Boulevard, just north of the city’s border with Culver City, according to a determination letter posted this month.
The apartment project will take shape in two phases at a roughly 1-acre site bordered by Washington Boulevard to the south, Clarington Avenue to the west, and Dunn Drive to the east. The first phase will involve the demolition of a single-family residence and former car dealership building to allow for the construction of a seven-story, 111-unit building at the northeastern portion of the project site. The second phase entails the demolition of a bank building at the site and the construction of a seven-story, 96-unit building.
The developer’s approvals include Tier-2 project incentives under the city’s transit-oriented communities program, allowing for a 60-percent density bonus, among other incentives. The project will include 19 apartments reserved for extremely low-income households, per TOC requirements.
The project will provide 126 automobile parking spaces split between the ground floor and two underground levels, as well as 171 bicycle spaces.
The two project phases will combine to offer 48 studio apartments, 86 one-bedrooms, 45 two-bedrooms, three two-bedroom townhomes, and 25 live-work units, according to the latest project plans.
A division of Mapleton Investments, Mapleton Properties is joined in the planned development by architecture firms Steinberg Hart and Rios, plans show.
