The West Los Angeles Planning Commission will hold a hearing next month to discuss the House of Pies, a popular diner in Los Feliz, expanding to a vacant lot in Venice.

The lot, 1020 Venice Blvd., has been vacant for years. In 2009, developers wanted to build a mixed-use, five-story building with 5,000 square feet of first-floor commercial space and 40 apartment units, but the idea was nixed after the community opposed the height of the proposed building. The lot was subsequently put up for sale in 2010.

In October 2012, the Venice Neighborhood Council held an introductory meeting with developers on the proposed House of Pies on the property. The proposed restaurant will have seating for 116 and be opened seven days a week.

The hearing involves an appeal of the Zoning Administrator's decision to approve the project. The developers are also seeking a conditional use permit to sell alcohol.

The meeting will be held at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19 in the Roll Call Room at the Henry Medina West L.A. Parking Enforcement builing, 11214 W. Exposition Blvd.
