Developer wants to build six-story housing project on Motor Avenue
By Sam Catanzaro
A developer wants to build a six-story, mixed-use housing development on a vacant lot in Palms that used to contain a single-family home, the latest in a string of developments in the area.
According to plans under consideration by the City of Los Angeles, a 7,500-square-foot property located at 3451 S. Motor Avenue is slated for a six-story building with 30 apartments, ground-floor retail space and a semi-subterranean parking garage.
City records list the project applicant as Shahram Mousavi.
This is the latest in a string of developments in the area. Similar mixed-use projects are in the works nearby at 3641, 3741, 3764 Motor Avenue. These four planned projects combined would bring a total of 126 units to the street.
In 2014, a bigger 115-unit development was completed on an adjacent property.
