A developer has plans to redevelop a 10-unit residential property in Sawtelle into a six-story, 40-unit apartment building, according to plans filed with the city of Los Angeles this month.
The planned project is being proposed by developer Sherif El Dabe and would take shape at 2448 – 2460 S. Barrington Avenue. The roughly 16,500-square-foot project site currently holds three multifamily residential structures totaling 10 units.
MaxJamRam LLC, a company managed by the developer, acquired one of the three parcels making up the project site last year for about $1.1 million, according to county records. The other two parcels are owned by affiliates.
The project applicant is seeking Tier-3 project approvals through the city’s Transit Oriented Communities Incentive Program, including a 17-unit, or roughly 70-percent, density bonus, and a 22-foot height increase to allow for a 67-foot-tall building, plans show. Four apartments would be reserved for extremely low-income households, one would be reserved for a very low-income household, and two would be reserved for low-income households, according to planning documents.
Designs for the West Los Angeles development proposal, which is named Barrington Apartments in application materials, are being led by Studio City-based Mika Design Group and Glendale-based Robert James Taylor Architects.
Plans call for six one-bedrooms, 19 two-bedrooms, and 15 three-bedrooms, along with 2,910 square feet of common open space and 1,350 square feet of private open space. Amenities would include a courtyard, a roof deck, and balconies.
The project would provide 61 automobile parking spaces and space for 39 bicycles, plans show.
