A 1930s apartment in Pico-Robertson is set to be replaced with a five-story building.

There is a redevelopment plan for the site where a 1930s apartment building now stands near the intersection of Pico and La Cienega boulevards, as reported Urbanizing Los Angeles. The application was submitted in early May to the Los Angeles Department of Planning.

The development proposal is to build a five-story structure at 8521 W. Horner Street on a single parcel of land. The new structure will house 29 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units that will be set up around an underground car park that can accommodate 33 vehicles.

Horner Property, LLC is the plaintiff and Shahrokh Zarrin, the LLC’s director, applied for density bonuses that would allow for a five-story building, which is more than local zoning ordinances would normally allow. As always, developers would be required to set aside affordable units for the restricted deed in the building. In this case, they would reserve six of the units for the very low income level.

The architect for the project is California Development and Design and they have designed a building that is of the popular low-rise contemporary style with a setback located roughly on the third floor of the building. According to Urbanize Los Angeles, plans show a landscaped rooftop terrace, as well as a recreation room inside the building.
