A trio of early 1920s single family dwellings in Hollywood could make way for apartments, according to plans recently submitted to the City of Los Angeles.
The houses - located at 6535-6547 Fountain Avenue - span a mid-block site located between Wilcox Avenue and Seward Street. Plans call for razing the century-old structures to make way for a four-story edifice featuring 34 apartments above two levels of subterranean parking.
Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives allowing for additional height than normally permitted by zoning rules. The developer would set aside three apartments as covenanted very low-income housing in exchange for the incentives.
City records list the project applicant as Anecita Seisa through an entity called Landre, LLC.
The project site is located two blocks west of Cahuenga Boulevard, where construction is now in progress for two large mixed-use developments - the Rise Hollywood apartments and the Netflix-leased On Vine complex.
A short distance north on Wilcox Avenue, developer Millennium Partners recently announced plans for a 14-story office tower fronting Sunset Boulevard.
