In the wake of community opposition, the developers of the 3rd and Fairfax mixed-use project in Beverly Grove have slashed the height of the building.

Holland Partner Group initially planned to redevelop part of the 215,000-square-foot Town and Country Shopping Center with a 26-story tower that would have included 381 residential units and 81,000 square feet of commercial space. But community groups protested the scale of the proposal, and Holland Partner Group decreased the project’s height to eight stories, UrbanizeLA reported.

The firm is now proposing to build a complex at 6300 W. 3rd Street with eight floors, 331 units and 84,000 square feet of new commercial space.

The plan for the site calls for the demolition of 151,000 square feet of existing space at the shopping center. About 63,700 square feet would remain, including the existing Whole Foods and CVS stores.

Construction on the project is, which is being designed by MVE + Partners, is expected to last about 32 months, and be complete by 2023. Arba Group has owned the property for more than 30 years.

The location is less than a block from The Grove shopping district and near Pan Pacific Regional Park and the Park La Brea community, one of the largest residential apartment complexes in the country.

Other developments are also being planned for the neighborhood, including a 50-unit development two blocks west at 8000 W. 3rd Street. [Urbanize] — Gregory Cornfield
