The Los Angeles planning department has approved plans by a developer to build a six-story, 40-unit apartment building on North Hoover Street in East Hollywood, according to a determination letter released by the city earlier this month.
The applicant behind the proposal is Category CEO Daniel Pourbaba, whose plan for 509 – 511 N. Hoover St. involves demolishing the site’s existing office building and two single-family homes to make way for an approximately 61,000-square-foot, 67-foot-tall apartment development.
This month’s approvals allow for Tier-3 project incentives under the city’s transit-oriented communities program, including a roughly 40-percent density bonus and a two-story height increase. The developer will reserve four apartments for extremely low-income households, per the TOC program, plans show.
Designed by Bittoni Architects, the new building will hold 26 five-bedrooms, eight three-bedrooms, one two-bedroom, and five one-bedrooms. It will also contain almost 5,000 square feet of open space including a residential courtyard, recreation room, and roof deck.
The development will provide 50 automobile parking spaces and 40 long-term bicycle spaces in a subterranean parking garage.
