LA Planning Commission Clears 6-Story Mixed-Use Project in Sherman Oaks
Yesterday, the Los Angeles Planning Commission approved the development and construction of a 30,870 square foot mixed-use building located at 15027 Ventura Blvd.
The project, which is being developed by Los Angeles-based Chandler Partners, would demolish a single-story commercial building to make way for a six-story building with 33 residential units including 4 dwelling units restricted to very low-income households and 2,300 square feet of commercial space. The dwelling units will be comprised of 30 one-bedroom units and 3 two-bedroom units located on five levels above the ground floor parking, commercial, and lobby areas.
According to the City’s staff report, the ground-level commercial space will encompass most of the building frontage and is envisioned to include retail and/or restaurant uses with potential for outdoor dining. Approximately 3,678 square feet of open space will be provided, including open and covered common open space deck areas mainly on the second and third-floor levels, private deck areas, and a central landscaped courtyard with built-in seating.
The proposed project would also include one level of subterranean parking, and parking at grade level which would total 49 parking spaces. 23 spaces will be for commercial use, 18 spaces for residential use, and eight spaces will be extra spaces. A total of 40 bicycle spaces will be provided.
Kalban Architects is designing the project and will include elements such as clad with a mix of stone travertine, cement plaster, and metal siding.
The Planning Commission conditionally approved the requested density bonus with the requested incentive for an increase in lot coverage, approved the project permit compliance for the Ventura/Cahuenga Boulevard Corridor Specific Plan and denied the waiver of dedication and improvement.
