A low-income housing complex could rise on a vacant lot in South Los Angeles, per a filing yesterday with the Department of City Planning.

The proposed development, located at the southwest corner of 69th and Main Streets, would encompass a City-owned property as well as an adjoining single-family home.  Plans call for a four-story building which would feature 50 residential units - including 49 affordable units and one manager's unit - over a 25-car parking garage.

The project applicant, an entity known as Residences on Main LP, is utilizing the City's new Transit Oriented Communities program, which allows relief from certain zoning provisions in exchange for affordable housing.  The 69th and Main development would require an increase in allowable floor area ratio and height.

Additional details about the project are currently unclear.

Small Apartment Building Slated for Crescent Heights Boulevard

Three-story, 12-unit building would rise on two parcels.

Last week, the City of West Hollywood's Design Review Subcommittee considered a proposal to construct a small apartment building on two parcels at 1011 and 1015 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard.

The project, which is being designed by Culver City-based architecture firm Modative, calls for the construction of a three-story, 12-unit building featuring 20 parking spaces.  Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings, including one unit of affordable housing.
