Another new residential complex may be on the way to East Hollywood, where a mini development boom is bringing hundreds of new apartments to the area.

Planned for a vacant lot at the intersection of Western and Fountain Avenues, the planned building would rise six stories and include 75 units of housing.

According to documents published by the Los Angeles Planning Department last week, the project would be built atop a two-level subterranean parking garage with 108 spaces for cars and 103 spots for bicycles.

A preliminary rendering of the project shows it will have a fairly straightforward design, fronted by trees and featuring large wraparound balconies for corner units.

Adjacent to the 101 freeway, the project is one of many in the works in the area. At least four other major developments are planned within a half-mile of the project site. They include a huge mixed use development that would replace a shuttered Sears on Santa Monica Boulevard and a multi-use complex that would replace an existing Food 4 Less grocery store.
