Multi-family residential development in the city is regulated by the Beverly Hills Zoning Code; certain provisions in state law may apply to new projects, as well. For more information on the development standards applicable to a new multi-family residential development, as well as state provisions that may apply, please refer to the document below:
If you are unsure whether your property is zoned for multi-family residential development, please consult the Beverly Hills GIS. The following zones are multi-family residential: R-4, R-4X1, R-4X2, and R-3.
New multi-family buildings require review by both the Planning Commission and the Architectural Commission. These are not concurrent processes – rather, you would need to obtain approval by the Planning Commission first before scheduling the project’s review at the Architectural Commission.
For more information on multi-family development in the city and/or the Planning Commission review process, please contact a planner by calling 310-285-1141 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
