CIM Group has submitted an application to Los Angeles City Planning to develop a seven-story, mixed-use project consisting of 110 apartments and 14,657 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

A strip of vacant residential and commercial structures and a surface parking lot would be demolished to make way for the proposed project at 6007 Sunset Boulevard. A parking structure that could accommodate up to 239 vehicles and bicycle storage would also be included.

The unit mix would consist of 32 studio, 39 one-bedroom and 39 two-bedroom apartments, with 11 units set aside for very low income households. The retail space would occupy most of the ground-floor, save for the residential lobby fronting onto Gordon Street.

The fourth floor would house 8,359 square feet of common space, including indoor amenity rooms, an open-air courtyard with landscaping and seating areas, and a pool deck featuring loungers, fire pit tables, a barbecue, trellis-shaded harvest table, green wall, stage, and additional seating and dining areas.

The 38,064-square-foot site is adjacent to CIM Group’s long-troubled Sunset and Gordon apartment tower, which had its permits retroactively revoked in 2015, forcing its tenants to vacate, following the unsanctioned demolition of a 1920s-era building on the property that was intended for preservation. The building remained unoccupied until late last year and a replica of the heritage building’s facade has since been constructed.

Designed by Culver City-based ShubinDonaldson Architects, 6007 Sunset Boulevard would showcase a boxy, modern profile with pops of green throughout. The material palette would consist of corrugated and perforated metal panels, dark grey-painted stucco, vinyl windows in various trim colors, and green storefront glass, among others.

“The Project includes three distinct sections in order to alternate color schemes and materials, thereby creating differentiation within the same architectural language,” explains a findings document.

The mixed-use development would be across the street from Emerson College’s Los Angeles campus and a short walk from the intersection of Hollywood and Vine — known for the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Capitol Records Building, historic performance venues, and the whimsically designed Metro station.
