Commercial Renovation on Lincoln Tentatively Set for June City Planning Hearing

Plans for the proposed renovation of the commercial property, originally built for a Ford dealership, on the west side of Lincoln Blvd between Venice and Washington Blvd at 2485 to 2499 Lincoln is tentatively set  to go before City Planning in June.

The project has not gone thru the Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) nor the Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC) and because of the June VNC election,  City Planning may hear the project first.

The lot is 27,845 square feet and consists of three buildings totaling over 11,000 square feet.

DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners is renovating the existing three buildings and providing onsite parking  without adding square footage or height.  The developer and the representative say that the renovation would make buildings suitable for a restaurant, a coffee shop, a fitness center, an office.  Usage is not determined.

There will be 44 parking spaces with a full-time valet. The north residential lot behind the commercial will also be used for parking. Vehicle entrance would be off Lincoln and off Van Buren to a one-way alley exiting on Garfield.  The architect is Rios Clementi Hale.
