Architectural plans posted by the P.I.C.O. Neighborhood Council offer a first look at a proposed development which would replace a surgical center in Mid-Wilshire with a larger medical complex.

The project, slated for a 26,000-square-foot site at San Vicente Boulevard and Orange Grove Avenue, calls for razing the existing single-story building to make way for a five-story structure containing offices, surgical rooms, and related functions, as well as parking for a total of 39 vehicles.

Mesa Design Architects is designing the project, called Docs Surgical Hospital, which would be clad in a combination of stone, terra cotta, and glass.  Renderings also show that the building would be capped by a landscaped rooftop deck.

City records list the project applicant as Dr. Khawar Siddique, a physician at the existing surgery center.

Requested entitlements for the proposed facility include a general plan amendment and a zone change.  The project is subject to votes by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission and the Los Angeles City Council.

The development site is located one block east of the intersection of Fairfax Avenue, San Vicente Boulevard, and Olympic Boulevard, where Jacmar Cos. recently filed plans to build a six-story, 120-unit apartment building with retail space.
