The owner of a Brentwood corner lot wants to build a multifamily development there. The only problem: it’s not zoned for it.

The Augustson Family Trust has filed for a zoning change, with ambitions of demolishing the vacant gas station and storefront at 1170 Sunset Boulevard, and building a mixed-use project. The requested zoning would allow for either 100 percent housing or housing above ground floor commercial space.

Provided the zoning change is approved, the developer would be able to build up to 27 units on the half-acre site. The request also asks to subdivide the lot, indicating the owner wants to allow condominiums to be built there.

The property is part of a small downtown area with a mix of local and national chain store businesses.

It’s also near the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs West L.A. Medical Center, which is poised for a massive upgrade. The VA wants to bring in a developer to build and then operate more than 1,000 units of housing there. That includes housing for homeless and at-risk homeless veterans.
