A new apartment complex is under construction at 4575 Santa Monica Boulevard in East Hollywood, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the development of an apartment complex offering residential units and onsite parking. The project will be replacing an automobile repair garage on the site.
Los Angeles-based real estate firm Urbanworks is the project developer. IwamotoScott Architecture is responsible for the design concepts.
The project will consist of a five-story building containing 16 apartments built atop parking for 10 vehicles. The apartments will be offered as a mix of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units.
Entitlements for the project rely on Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a larger structure than allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, two of the apartments are to be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.
Renderings reveal a contemporary low-rise structure with a rear-facing terrace deck and two courtyards. The facade employs a contrast between flatness and depth, using a system of staggered and elevated plaster facade modules to create windows as gaps between them.
The project site sits one block east of Vermont/Santa Monica Station.
