Four single-family homes and a triplex have been demolished at 3739-3759 Cardiff Avenue, as a local investor prepares to break ground on yet another apartment building in Palms.

The project site, located just north of Venice Boulevard and Downtown Culver City, is approved for the construction of a six-story building featuring 74 apartments - including eight extremely low-income affordable units - and 150 parking spaces on two subterranean levels.

Project applicant Robert Green, through an entity called Frame DTCC, LLC, obtained entitlements with Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives, thus allowing for a building that is taller and denser than the zoning code would normally allow.

City records indicate that the apartments are being designed by the Mika Design Group, with Robert James Taylor Architects serving as the architect of record and MJS Design Group serving as landscape architecture.  Floor plans show that the building would have multiple exterior facing courtyards atop the podium level, as well as a roof deck, in lieu of a larger central open space.

A timeline for the project is unclear.
