New Silver Lake townhouse project in the works for Griffith Park Boulevard

SILVER LAKE –– What’s going on behind that green construction screen at 1925 Griffith Park Boulevard? A developer is planning to build 11 townhomes in a project described as a “modern interpretation of an Italian hill-side town.”

The developer has filed an application with the Planning Department seeking to carve up the property — located across an alley near Casita Del Campo —  into separate sites under the city’s small-lot development ordinance, which allows property owners to build more single-family homes than would normally be allowed.

Each of the three-story homes would have a roof-top deck and attached garage, according to building permit records. In addition to 11 homes, the project would have 25 parking spaces. Renderings created by the architecture firm Modative show contemporary-style homes in what it calls a “modern interpretation of an Italian hill-side town.”

  1. boy oh boy, am I excited to visit a “modern interpretation of an Italian hillside town” much cheaper than an actual Italian hillside town!

    In fairness, these look decent and I’m glad to see them include individual roofdecks, but in frankness, these couldn’t be further from the actual look of an italian hillside town. Except for the small lattice covering on the roofdeck, there’s literally nothing at all resembling something from Italy.

  2. Each home in the “village” will have a rope and pulley system mounted on the exterior roof deck.
    The new home buyers/occupants will be encouraged to run a string of their laundry out to dry so that neighbors and passers-by can see.

  3. Italian hill-side town?
    I suppose “interpretation” is the key word here.

  4. Pack ’em in like Sardinians. This is Manhattan dense.

  5. Either the address or the photo is wrong. This lot is further down the street than 1625 GPB.
