An secluded patch of land in the midst of Ballona Creek could birth one of the most peculiar mixed-use developments in Southern California. Yesterday, developer Ilan Israely submitted plans to the City of Los Angeles to construct a residential-retail complex on a triangular patch of land at 5000 S. Beethoven Street. The project site, a 2.7-acre plot at the confluence of Ballona and Centinela Creeks, would yield 199 market rate apartments, 35 units of low income housing and approximatley 18,000 square feet of commercial uses.

The Los Angeles Department of City Planning has published an environmental report detailing a proposedoffice complex in Del Rey. The Alla Road Creative Campus, slated for a six-acre property near the terminus of the Marina Freeway, would feature a trio of two-story buildings containing 155,000 square feet of office space. Plans also call for a standalone four-story garage, as well as a surface lot, providing parking accommodations for a total of 600 vehicles and 47 bicycles.
Just three years after opening, an expansion is planned for the Stella Marina del Rey Apartments. The existing complex, located at 13488 W. Maxella Avenue, features 244 luxury apartments above ground-floor retail and restaurant place. According to plans submitted to the City of Los Angeles, the expansion would create an additional 65 residential units in a six-story structure. The project would require discretionary approvals by the City, including a zone change.
A series of commercial properties just outside of Marina del Rey could give way for a large mixed-use development. Last week, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a residential-retail complex at 13450 W. Maxella Avenue. The approximately 6.8-acre site, located east of Lincoln Boulevard, is currently developed with shopping center and an associated parking lot. Its is unclear which, if any, existing buildings would be affected.
According to a report from the Argonaut, El Segundo-based developers Continental Development Corporation and Mar Ventures, Inc. have banded together to build a new creative office campus in Del Rey. The proposed development, called the Alla Road Creative Campus, would consist of a trio of two-story buildings near the western terminus of the Marina Freeway. Plans call for approximately 155,000 square feet of office space, in addition to a one-acre outdoor courtyard and a parking garage for 600 vehicles.
Marina Del Rey’s so-called “Arts District,” received quite a bit of investment prior to the last real estate bubble, with perhaps a dozen residential developments springing up before the market flat lined. With the housing market in better condition five years later, the neighborhood is starting to see long dormant projects come back to life. Recently, I noticed construction that an an extension was taken out for site plans at 4131 Glencoe Avenue, a mixed-use proposal from the Torrance based Katherine Companies.
Back in Marina Del Rey, developer Trical Construction is nearing completion on a 77-unit apartment complex located at 4108 Del Rey Avenue. The five-story development, designed by Keith Dover Associates, is known as Tribeca Urban, a somewhat ironic name given the project’s deliberate isolation from the street. Tribeca Urban will consist of 1-3 bedroom apartments and provide “resort-style amenities,” including a fitness center, an outdoor fireplace, and a spa. The building is scheduled to open late this year.
Marina Del Rey’s so-called Arts/Loft District may not have much in the way of art, but the neighborhood will be adding yet another low-rise residential building to the mix. Plans were submitted to the city in early February for a 67-unit condo development at 4091 Redwood Avenue featuring 7,500 square feet of commercial space. The new residential building would rise five stories, replacing one of the last remaining warehouse structures from prior to the neighborhood’s mid-2000 development boom.
Just north of Jefferson Boulevard and Centinela Avenue, Texas based Dinerstein Cos. is wrapping up construction on a development which has transformed the former site of a church into a multi-family residential complex. The project at 5550 Grosvenor Boulevard, dubbed Millennium Del Rey, will create 196 apartments within a stucco-clad four-story structure. Units in the LEED Silver Certified development will range from one to three bedrooms, featuring high-quality fixtures and smart home technology.
