New apartments may soon be on the way to Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. As Urbanize LA reports, permits were recently filed with the city for construction of a seven-story mixed use development at 6007 West Sunset.
The project would replace a row of low-slung commercial buildings across the street from Emerson College’s flashy new Morphosis-designed campus. Plans call for 63 apartments above a parking structure and one level of commercial space. Additionally, the project would include a swimming pool on the fourth floor.
The project is being designed by architecture firm Shubin + Donaldson. Renderings spotted by Urbanize LA (but since removed from the firm’s website) show an orderly design with boxy units and floor-to-ceiling windows. The structure dips down on the western side, where the top level becomes the fourth-story pool deck, surrounded by a ring of commercial space.
Renderings also show several common areas, marked by yellow-colored walls and greenery, dispersed on multiple floors throughout the building.
Permits don’t specify a developer for the project, but property records show the project site was purchased in April of 2016 for $15.5 million.
