Another Mixed-User on the Way in Westlake

1324 W Wilshire Blvd

More apartments appear to be coming to the stretch of Wilshire Blvd that traverses the Westlake neighborhood.  Here are the details filed with the Department of City Planning:

1324 1/2 W Wilshire Blvd
This project includes the demolition of two three-story existing office buildings for the construction of a 6-story, approximately 73-ft. tall building with 52 residential dwelling units, 54 parking spaces, approx. 5,281 sq. ft. of ground floor neighborhood serving retail, and a total of approx. 56,598 sq. ft. of floor space.
1324 1/2 W Wilshire is part of a trend of new developments emerging with reduced parking components.  Always a nice thing to see, and it makes perfect sense in a transit rich neighborhood like Westlake.

This proposal joins two larger scale developments located less than one block away.  To the east, Good Samaritan Hospital's Medical Plaza is currently under construction at the corner of Wilshire and Witmer.

To the west, Sonny Astani plans to build a six story mixed-use development with 220 apartments at the corner of Wilshire and Valencia.

    Do you have any info on this one? Its in the vacant lot you can see in the bottom left of the aerial photo above. Probably an update of this older 2007 permit submitted by Killefer Flammang Architects:
