David Pourbaba is expected to begin construction on a six-story, mixed-use development along the busy West Adams Boulevard corridor.
The $20 million project features 115 residential units with private balconies, over flexible commercial spaces at the ground level.
A landscaped podium on the third level provides a shared common space. There also is a set-aside for 13 units for low-income households.
The project, which is located at 5181 W. Adams Blvd. near La Brea Avenue, is being built by Pourbaba’s 4D Development.
The permit will be pulled in the next few weeks, according to Mark Bittoni, principal with Bittoni Architects.
Santa Monica-based Bittoni Architects is the design architect on the project while Westwood-based AFCO Design is the executive architect.
The residential portion of the 5181 W. Adams Blvd. project is larger than 4D’s first proposal at the site. In 2015, the West Hollywood-based firm 4D filed for a four-story, 72-unit project.
The project, dubbed “Rise on Adams,” originally had parking underground and nearly 34,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
Pourbaba has been active in the West Adams and Koreatown areas.
In February, Pourbaba proposed a new apartment complex in the booming area between East Hollywood and Koreatown, adding to the number of projects proposed in the community. The five-story complex near the Vermont/Wilshire Metro Station on Beverly Boulevard, would include 67 units above one level of retail.
