A site that has been vacant since early 2018 may once again see some activity. A proposal for a five-story apartment building at 1233 South Dunsmuir Avenue has been submitted to Los Angeles City Planning. 

The proposal calls for 17 units — three studios, nine one-bedroom apartments, four two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment — in addition to parking for 12 vehicles and 19 bicycles. Each unit will have its own private balcony, measuring 50 square feet.

Designed by local design studio, AERO COLLECTIVE, the modern black and white exterior will be clad in board form concrete, brick and metal panels, with black-framed windows and metal guardrails on the balconies.

The ground floor will feature a small lobby with mailboxes and parcel lockers, plus a bike storage room for added convenience. The second floor offers a gym, community room and a “rear yard” that includes bench seating, a fire pit, barbecue area and lush landscaping.

David Wright, the COO of Markwood Enterprises, a Beverly Hills-based real estate investment firm, is listed as the applicant. The developer has constructed a number of other mid-size residential projects in West LA, Larchmont and Mid-Wilshire. They are requesting Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) incentives in exchange for the inclusion of two affordable housing units.

The proposed project is situated on a tree-lined street that touts a mix of single-family homes and mid-rise apartment buildings. Future residents will be able to walk to the many restaurants, shops and businesses along Pico Boulevard, or take a 10-minute drive to The Grove or LACMA.
