L.A. City Council backs 520-unit apartment complex at Sportsmen’s Lodge site

Wednesday April 3, 2024

The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday backed a developer’s plans to replace the landmark Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City with a 520-unit residential mixed-used development.

The council voted 13 to 1 to deny an appeal of the project, allowing Midwood Investment & Development to demolish the once-popular event center and hotel at Ventura Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon Avenue.

In addition to 520 apartment units, 78 of which would be set aside for low-income tenants, the development will offer 46,000 square feet of commercial space. A bike and pedestrian path along the L.A. River also is planned.
