A presentation to the Los Angeles City Planning Commission offers a first look at a proposed mixed-use development in Silver Lake.
The project, which would replace two small buildings at the intersection of Rowena Avenue and Rokeby Street, calls for the construction of a six-story, 60-foot-tall building featuring 39 one- and two-bedroom apartments - including four very low-income affordable units - with 1,887 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and 38 parking stalls located at grade and in a basement level.
Platinum Triangle Group, the project's developer, has tapped Nest Architecture to design the low-rise structure. Renderings depict a contemporary building with open space amenities located on its upper level.
The project has been redesigned since Platinum Triangle initially filed for entitlements in September 2018 as a result of community feedback. The number of apartments and the amount retail space have been reduced, while the size of its parking garage has been increased.
A staff report recommends that the City Planning Commission should approve the project and designate it as exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act.
