The West Adams Neighborhood Council‘s land use committee Thursday evening will discuss and make a recommendation regarding a proposed five-story, 29-unit project slated for 3514-3522 Chesapeake Ave., its meeting agenda shows. In a case filing for the proposal, the project applicant is listed as 3518 Chesapeake Ventures LLC, a company registered to the offices of Van Nuys-based Schaffel Development Co.
The project site currently holds a pair of duplexes that would be demolished pursuant to plans to build a new 47,513-square-foot, Tier-3 project under the city of Los Angeles’ transit-oriented communities program. The project applicant would set aside three units for extremely low-income households and is requesting TOC incentives including an 11-foot height increase to a maximum of 56 feet.
The development would provide 19 parking stalls in a ground-floor garage, along with storage for 31 bicycles. Residential amenities include a gym, recreation room, business center, lounge, and roof deck.
Eric Lieberman of land-use consulting firm QES is listed as the representative for the project, which planning documents show is scheduled to break ground in May 2021 and deliver in April 2022. The owner of the 12,816-square-foot project site is a trust.
Also on the West Adams Neighborhood Council committee’s docket Thursday evening is a 254-unit project proposed for 3190-3240 S. La Cienega Blvd. by S.D. Abraham of real estate investment entity Mesa Rim LLC. That proposed project was put forward in late 2020, while a planning file for Schaffel Development Co.’s Chesapeake Avenue project has been open since last month.
