Proposed Modular Housing Complex in Hollywood to Face City Planning Commission
Apartments and retail to replace a surface parking lot.
A proposal to redevelop a surface parking lot in Hollywood with mixed-income housing is scheduled to face the Los Angeles City Planning Commission at a hearing this week.
The project would rise from a narrow site at 1601-1647 N. Las Palmas Avenue, which is currently improved as a surface parking lot. Relevant Group, which is seeking entitlements for the property, proposes the construction of a seven-story building containing 202 apartments and approximately 14,200 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. The mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings would include 69 units of restricted low-income housing, making the project eligible for streamlined permitting via SB 35.
Relevant Group, best known for its collection of hotel developments in Hollywood, has recently ventured into the construction of modular apartment buildings, including affordable housing complexes in Downtown and South Los Angeles.
