A presentation to the Mar Vista Community Council has revealed a rendering for 12444 Venice Boulevard, the first of two Mar Vista developments planned by local real estate firm Crimson Holdings. The proposed mixed-use complex, first reported by the Real Deal LA, would rise from the southeast corner of Venice Boulevard and Wasatch Avenue, replacing a shopping center. Plans filed with the City of Los Angeles call for a five-story structure, featuring 77 residential units, 2,100 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking accommodations for 75 vehicles and 89 bicycles.
Mar Vista’s stretch of Washington Place will soon get a nice shot in the arm, as a parcel at the southwestern corner of the intersection with East Boulevard will soon get eight mini-houses via the small lot subdivision. The 8 East Homes will range from 1,600 to 2,000 square feet, each containing 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. They will also be equipped with roof top decks, offering panoramic views of the LA basin.
