A surgery center located at the notorious Fairfax Asterisk could be redeveloped with a larger hospital building, according to plans recently filed with the City of Los Angeles.

The project - slated for a nearly 26,000-square-foot site at the southeast corner of San Vicente Boulevard and Orange Grove Avenue - calls for the construction of a five-story building featuring a roof deck.  The new building would accommodate medical services including spine-related emergency cases, administrative offices, and X-Ray and MRI machines.

The proposed building would be capped by a roof deck, according to a project description.

City records list the project applicant as Dr. Khawar Siddique, a physician at the surgical center that currently occupies the development site.

The hospital project would rise less than a mile south of the intersection of San Vicente and Wilshire Boulevard, where a 12-story medical office complex is now in the works.

It is one of several recently developments near at the Fairfax Asterisk - the confusing intersection of Fairfax Avenue, San Vicente Boulevard, and Olympic Boulevard - including the Vinz apartments and a proposed mixed-use project from Wiseman Residential.
