The community review will come less than two weeks after the release of a draft environmental impact report for the project, which now outlines smaller plans than were originally pitched by the project team in 2018. Proposed that year by property owner Arba Group, which is joined in the proposal by shopping center operator Regency Centers and investment and development company Holland Partner Group, the project initially called for a 381-unit, 26-story project but now appears to entail an eight-story mixed-use building with 50 fewer units.

Named 3rd & Fairfax, the proposed development is limited to the eastern half of the 327,121-square-foot shopping center site and calls for demolishing a 131,873-square-foot building formerly occupied by retailer Kmart, as well as almost 20,000 square feet of other retail space. Plans call for the new mixed-use development to rise about 100 feet and include almost 85,000 square feet of new commercial space along with the residential portion. The new commercial space would be anchored by a 63,082-square-foot supermarket and also include 7,500 square feet of restaurant space and another 13,400 square feet of general commercial/retail space, plans show.

The residential portion would be limited to levels four through eight of the project and consist of 70 studios, 162 one-bedrooms, 66 two-bedrooms, and 33 three-bedrooms. Amenities would include a pool deck and outdoor courtyards, among other features.

According to the Mid City West council committee’s Tuesday meeting agenda, the project team will make a presentation on the latest plans for 3rd & Fairfax, which will be followed by a review, discussion, and possible action by the planning and land use committee. If approved by the neighborhood council, the proposed project would then still have to receive approvals from the planning commission and city council, including for a finalized environmental impact report.
