Los Angeles Residential Construction Management Projects

Commercial Residential
Building in Los Angeles has become increasingly challenging over the last few years due to the various Interim Control Ordinances (ICOs) implemented in numerous neighborhoods across the City and increased zoning and haul route restrictions. These include the Baseline Mansionization Ordinance (BMO) that was enacted in response to the perceived proliferation of out-of-scale development in neighborhoods. The Baseline Hillside Ordinance (BHO) establishes regulations relevant to percentages of the lot for the hillside areas including limitations on size, square footage, allowable grading, as well as the allowable height of a structure based on the degree of incline or slope of the lot.The City of Los Angeles has recently increased restrictions and enforcement of haul route policies which significantly impact building projects. Haul route ordinances dictate a project’s amount of imported and exported soil by cubic yards, the number of trucks allowed per day, the daytime hours hauling is permitted and their path of travel. Approvals for haul routes are required from the City of Los Angeles not only for the project’s location, but also for any adjacent jurisdictions the trucks may traverse in their path out of the City. In the neighborhood known as the “Bird Streets”, the territory bound by Sunset Boulevard to the south, Hillcrest Drive to the west, Crescent Drive to the north, and Rising Glen to the east, the amount of permissible hauling is limited further by calculating the number of truckloads per day shared among all projects in the area. Stonemark’s extensive first-hand experience with the complex codes of the numerous and varying jurisdictional requirements within the County and City of Los Angeles is essential to shepherd your project through to successful approvals and project completion.Stonemark’s diverse portfolio includes numerous new high-value residences & estates from 5,000 SF to 40,000 SF and up to $50 million throughout Los Angeles and its exclusive enclaves designed by architectural firms ShubinDonaldon, Studio William Hefner, Appleton & Associates, Harrison Design, Paul McLean and renowned designers Joan Behnke, James Magni, Victoria Hagan and Michael Smith.
