A rental property as elegant as Rita Hayworth herself has been pitched for the street bearing the actress’s name in Faircrest Heights. 

The single-family home that currently occupies 1537 South Hayworth Avenue could make way for a four-story apartment building containing 16 units, according to an application submitted to Los Angeles City Planning this week.

Developer David Neman, who is behind several other multi-family projects throughout Los Angeles, is listed as the applicant. West Pacifica Design conceived of the smooth stucco and warm wood exterior, which would be accented with metal balcony railings.

The project would feature one studio, eight one-bedroom units and seven two-bedroom units, spanning 385 to 1,012 square feet. Two of the apartments would be reserved for extremely low-income tenants in exchange for Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) incentives, including a height increase and open space and setback reductions.

One level of subterranean parking would be provided with 13 vehicle and 18 bicycle parking spaces. Many of the units would tout private outdoor balconies, but all residents would be able to enjoy a 989-square-foot rear yard landscaped with colorful trees and shrubs.

The proposed development is just a five-minute walk from the bustling intersection of Fairfax Avenue and Pico Boulevard. The Faircrest Heights neighborhood boasts a Von’s supermarket, The Mint live music venue, locally-owned restaurants and cafes, plus several bus routes. It’s also a straight-shot to the Miracle Mile District, home to LACMA, The La Brea Tar Pits, The Grove, The Original Farmers’ Market and much more.
