A small commercial building on the border between Los Angeles and Beverly Hills could be redeveloped with a mixed-use apartment building, according to plans submitted yesterday to the City of Los Angeles.

The project site - located at 412-418 S. Robertson Boulevard - is is slated for the construction of a four-story building featuring 38 residential units with ground-floor retail on-site parking for 28 vehicles.

The entitlement application makes use of Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives - which would be granted in exchange for setting aside four units for extremely low-income households - including a 50 percent density bonus, an increase in allowable floor area, a height increase to 56 feet, a reduction in open space, and a reduced parking requirement.

Property records list the owner roughly 7,700-square-foot site as a physician named Abraham Ebbie Soroudi.

Located just south of the intersection of Robertson and Burton Way, the proposed development is among a handful of multifamily residential developments planned or under construction in the western side of Beverly Grove, including a Four Seasons-branded condo tower.

Next-door to the proposed development, construction is currently underway for a similar six-story, 37-unit apartment complex at 426 S. Robertson Boulevard.  That project is being developed by investor Mahyar Barin and designed by Uriu & Associates.
