The Central Los Angeles Area Planning Commission on Tuesday will review appeals against approvals for 3rd & Fairfax, a planned eight-story, 331 mixed-use apartment development in Mid-Wilshire, according to its agenda for this week.
The proposed development would replace about 150,000 square feet of retail space within the eastern portion of the Town and Country shopping center. It is being led by investment and development company Holland Partner Group, shopping center operator Regency Centers, and property owner Arba Group, plans show.
This week, planning commissioners will vote on separate appeals against February planning department approvals filed later that month by the Park La Brea Impacted Residents Group and Supporters Alliance for Environmental Responsibility. The two groups claim the environmental impact report for the proposed development fails to analyze its impacts, among other arguments. Planning staff recommend that commissioners deny the appeals and sustain the earlier approvals, citing a lack of substantial evidence showing the planning department erred in approving the project, planning documents show.
If moved forward, the project will hold a mix of studio apartments, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, and three-bedrooms above approximately 85,000 square feet of commercial space anchored by a 63,082-square-foot supermarket, plans show.
Planned residential amenities include a gym, a pool deck, and courtyards.
Property owner Arba Group’s plans for the site initially called for a 381-unit, 26-story project.
