Shoreham Capital released new details of a planned West Hollywood multifamily project earlier this month.

The development at 8670 Shoreham Drive will be three stories and include 11 units, according to documents submitted to the West Hollywood Planning Commission and first reported by Urbanize.

It will replace a two-story apartment building on the corner of Sherbourne Drive.

Shoreham Capital, a Beverly Hills-based developer, brought in Santa Monica architect John Mebasser to design the project. The planning commission liked its ornate balcony railings and curving walls and recommended that the City Council approve the project.

The same cannot be said for a 30-unit project on Fountain Avenue the commission reviewed at the same meeting. One commissioner called 8000 Fountain Avenue “adequate,” and a resident said the designs looked like one “that first-year architects could do,” according to WeHoville.

The planning commission moved last fall to ease the development process in the city. It approved a recommendation to allow city staffers to sign off on any project under 10 units, up from eight units, without planning commission review.  [Urbanize] – Dennis Lynch
