Document Description
The Project applicant, Bright Star Schools, is seeking development approval from the Los Angeles Unified School District for the construction and operation of a charter school (Rise Kohyang Middle School; proposed Project). The proposed Project site is in the city of Los Angeles (west of downtown) in the Pico-Union neighborhood. There are 11 addresses associated with the site: 1700 and 1710 West Olympic Boulevard, and 1001, 1003, 1005, 1007, 1011, 1015, 1019, 1023, 1029 South Beacon Avenue (Assessor’s Parcel Number 5137-017-014). The new independent charter middle school would have a capacity of 450 students in grades 6-8 and 40 full- and part-time teachers and staff. The proposed Project consists of a 69,200-square-foot, four-story building with staff space (reception/clerical/administration/teacher offices, conference rooms), restrooms, support space (custodial, storage, electrical/telecommunications rooms), 21 classrooms, science laboratories, a multipurpose room, student and faculty dining areas, and a subterranean parking garage. Currently, Rise Kohyang Middle School is operating in an existing classroom space in a building located at 3020 Wilshire Boulevard, approximately one mile northwest of the new site. The existing school has 16 classrooms, a multipurpose room, and several office spaces and serves approximately 287 students in grades 6-8. When the new school is completed, students would transfer to the new location.
