CIM Group is doubling down in West L.A.

The Mid-Wilshire-based developer wants to build a 154-unit mixed-use complex on Granville Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard, right next door to another 147-unit apartment project it started building last year, according to city filings. The two projects will replace a shuttered Buerge Ford dealership on the site.

This latest project calls for 6,000 square feet of restaurant space and 9,000 square feet of retail, Curbed reported. It will also have two levels of underground parking.

Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects, the architecture firm behind the 147-unit project, is also designing the new building.

CIM Group, founded by Shaul Kuba, also has two projects on one block in Hollywood, The Real Deal reported. It’s building a 22-story apartment building at 5929 Sunset Boulevard, across the street from a controversial 63-unit building it owns at 6007 Sunset Boulevard.

The latter project was already completed when CIM was hit with a lawsuit in 2014 alleging it illegally demolished a 1920s-era Old Spaghetti Factory that formerly occupied the site. A judge recently invalidated the company’s building permit, forcing tenants to vacate the building and CIM to seek reapproval. [Curbed]Cathaleen Chen
