MDR Tower, LLC plans to present the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a proposed 31-story mixed-use tower on Lincoln Boulevard near Marina del Rey at a meeting of the Venice Neighborhood Council Land Use and Planning Committee Wednesday, January 23rd.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Westminster Elementary School auditorium, 1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice.

The proposed development, at 4363 Lincoln Blvd., would rise 12 stories above neighboring structures, according to the Venice Neighborhood Council. If approved and constructed, the 366-foot-high mixed-use retail and condominium building would become the tallest building within the California Coastal Zone between Long Beach and the San Francisco Peninsula, according to the Neighborhood Council.

The project is planned to include 158 residential units, with ten percent of the units designated as affordable to very-low-income households, and 3,178 square feet of retail space. The proposal would provide a total of 19,175 square feet of open space.

Proposed resident-only amenities include a fitness center and a recreation deck with pool and spa facilities. Parking would be provided with 408 spaces in a six-level above-ground structure.
