CIM Group has plans for an eight-story, 364-unit mixed-use apartment project in the Jefferson Park neighborhood, according to a new planning case posted by the city of Los Angeles this week.
Designed by architecture firm AC Martin, CIM Group’s 325,000-square-foot, 88-foot-tall project would rise at 2211 S. Western Avenue, next to a pair of smaller multifamily projects on the same, roughly 3.5-acre project site just south of the Santa Monica Freeway. The LA-based real estate investment company has secured a certificate of occupancy for one of the projects, a 60-unit building at 2231 S. Western, and it has been issued building permits for the other: a 48-unit residential structure at 2221 S. Western.
The latest project would rise on vacant portions of the property’s northern and eastern sides, forming an L-shaped building with 119 studio apartments, 177 one-bedrooms, and 68 two-bedrooms, with 38 units reserved for very low-income households. The development would also contain about 70,000 square feet of retail at levels one to three.
“The Project is a mixed-use, smart-growth development that does not displace any existing dwelling units,” the development team writes in application documents. “The Project will develop a much-needed housing project on land that has been underutilized for decades.”
CIM Group is seeking approvals for a 45-percent density increase, among other requests, plans show.
Plans call for about 34,000 square feet of common open space, as well as residential amenities including a pool, fitness center, and courtyards.
The project would provide 532 automobile parking spaces across one underground level and four above-grade levels, as well as 254 bicycle spaces.
Designs for the 2211 S. Western Ave. project are also being steered by landscape architect Superjacent.
