The Los Angeles Planning Commission next month will review plans for a five-story, 18-unit multifamily project at 10912 – 10914 ½ Blix St. in the Toluca Lake neighborhood, according to a vote on Thursday. The project had been slated for review this month, but commissioners have opted to continue their vote on the project to May 27.
The owner and developer behind the project is Garen Boyajian of Blix Equities LLC, plans show.
Taking the name Blix Apartments, the project would replace a four-unit residential at the site with a new 21,695-square-foot, 54-foot-tall apartment building holding four one-bedrooms and 14 two-bedroom units. Plans also call for one level of underground automobile parking with 16 spaces, as well as 18 long-term bike spaces.
The applicant is requesting planning incentives including a nine-foot height boost (to 54 feet) and 35-percent density bonus (to the currently proposed unit count), among others. The project would set aside one unit for a low-income household and two additional units for very low-income households.
Plans also call for about 1,430 square feet of common open space, including in a rear patio on the ground floor, a roof deck, and a recreation room on the fifth floor.
LA-based Bittoni Architects is listed as the project architect for Blix Apartments.
The NoHo Neighborhood Council voted to support the development in November, What Now Los Angeles reported last year. Boyajian told What Now Los Angeles around that time that Blix Equities plans on taking several steps to support housing stability among the project’s future tenants, including refraining from rental increases on multi-year leases.
