A proposal is in the works for a small lot housing development in easy walking distance to one of LA’s gems: Barnsdall Art Park.
Plans were filed Wednesday with the city to carve up property on Hollywood Boulevard just across the street from the Los Feliz park, which boasts spectacular views of the city, is home to the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House, and hosts movie screenings and (pricy) wine tastings.
Details are scarce—the city’s planning database doesn’t even yet show who the developer is—but the plans show the subdivision would hold 21 homes. Three of them would be live-work units.
The developer, whoever it might be, is requesting approval from the city to build up to 36 feet, 6 feet higher than what’s allowed under zoning restrictions at that site.
Right now, the property at 4773 West Hollywood Boulevard is home to a parking lot and the Center for Inquiry, which, presumably, would be demolished to make way for the new homes.
One block to the west, at Hollywood and Edgemont, another developer is seeking to build a six-story apartment complex with 200 units and ground-floor retail.
