...a mixed-use residential project with approximately 149 residential dwelling units and approximately 4,280 square feet of ground floor commercial space on the south parcel.
I imagine the retail space would be destined for a small, neighborhood serving mini-mart. While there is a large residential population surrounding this intersection, I suspect that any kind of "destination," type store (i.e. the kind that people might consider driving to) would draw the ire of the neighbors. While this proposal is technically at the corner of Fairfax and San Vicente, Olympic Blvd intersects both streets just a hundred or so feet away. To put it mildly, traffic kind of gets backed up around here.
