The Melrose project would replace a surface parking lot at the southwestern corner of Melrose Avenue and North Sycamore Avenue with a new, approximately 67-foot-tall, 62,000-square-foot mixed-use development holding 36 one-bedroom apartments, 27 two-bedrooms, and 2,110 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, among other features.

Requested approvals include a 37-foot height increase and 27-unit density bonus, with planning staff recommending that the commissioners approve the plans as requested.

Tiger West Capital has had plans to develop the 16,735-square-foot project site for several years, receiving approvals for a three-story, 40-unit project in 2016.

Designs for its latest plans are being led by Glendale-based Robert James Taylor Architects and Studio City-based Mika Design Group, with Newport Beach-based landscape architect MJS Design Group also involved, plans show. They also call for almost 7,000 square feet of open space, including private balconies, recreation rooms, a 1,531-square-foot courtyard, and a 2,651-square-foot roof deck with a pool.

The development would provide 101 on-site vehicular parking spaces across one at-grade and two subterranean parking levels, along with space for 59 bicycles.
