A 1950s-era, multi-family bungalow near the intersection of Washington and Lincoln Boulevard in Marina Del Rey could make way for a seven-story condominium with 27 units and resident amenities.

A development application to Los Angeles City Planning was submitted on Thursday by Bradford Neal, the owner-broker of Goldcoast Properties, described as “a boutique Venice based real estate investment firm.” 

The modern mid-rise was conceived by Breakform Design, an architectural, building and specialty fabrication office out of El Segundo. Plans call for 20 market-rate units and seven affordable units reserved for very low income households. Spanning 441 to 880 square feet, each residence would include one bedroom, one bathroom and a 50-square-foot private balcony.

Common amenities would include a lobby with pedestrian access off Beach Street, a 600-square-foot rec room and an 882-square-foot roof deck. A total of 14 parking spaces would be provided on subterranean and at-grade levels, in addition to 52 bicycle parking spaces. 

The proposed project, which Breakform Design has referred to as “W.I.P.” in social media posts, initially featured 17 condos but the count was later bumped up to 27. In exchange for the inclusion of affordable units, the developer is seeking Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) incentives such as a density bonus, height and floor area ratio increases, and open space, setback and parking reductions. The neighborhood is serviced by Culver CityBus and Big Blue Bus routes.

Located at 13481 West Beach Avenue, the condominium would be within walking distance of everyday conveniences like Walgreens, Unleashed by Petco, Costco Wholesale and several bank branches. Local hotspots like Firestone Walker Brewing Company, NIGHT + MARKET Sahm, 26 Beach and The Lincoln are also accessible on foot. The marina would be a quick, six-minute bike ride away, while Venice Beach could be reached in ten minutes.
