Mini mixed-use development planned for Third Street Historic District
The project would include two apartments with a market
By Dolores Quintana
Redcar Properties has plans for a parking lot near the Santa Monica beach, as reported by Urbanize Los Angeles, and the project was submitted to the Santa Monica Planning Commission on Nov. 2 for review. Redcard Properties already owns the site at 2668 2nd Street.
The plan is to build a two-story building with two housing units and a 738 neighborhood market on the ground floor with seven basement parking spaces in a single-storey parking area. Kevin Daly Architects is the official designer and the project would consist of a two bedroom apartment and a two story townhouse with three bedrooms which would be located above the market. The exterior of the building would be clad in wood and there would be a small courtyard outside.
This site is part of the Third Street Historic District, which makes the approval process a bit more difficult. The Historic Resources Group report approved the building’s more modern design according to Urbanize Los Angeles as meeting local and federal requirements for new buildings in historic districts and the Santa Monica Landmarks Commission, which has already approved the design.
