Updated, Monday, September 25, 2017, 10:00 a.m.: Fogel Real Estate plans to demolish an existing vacant structure at 825 Hampton Drive in Venice to make room for a three-story mixed-use property, according to documents it filed with the city on Thursday.

The 25,400-square-foot building would include eight live/work condominium units, three levels of subterranean parking with space for 82 vehicles and 9,000 square feet of commercial space at the ground level. Details in the filing hint that a 1,600-square-foot restaurant with exterior dining is part of the plan.

A company named “Hampton Venice” purchased the site from a family trust in April.

Fogel Real Estate has significant holdings in Venice Beach, as well as the Westside of Los Angeles. Its owner, Blake Fogel, says he’s actively seeking new projects.
