A handful of small residential buildings in Palms could be redeveloped with a larger apartment complex through the City's Transit Oriented Communities program.

The project, slated for five parcels at 3739-3759 S. Cardiff Avenue, calls for the construction of a six-story building featuring 74 apartments over one level of subterranean parking.

A case filing lists the project's applicant at Frame DTCC, LLC.

The development site is located in a Tier III TOC zone, which allows for projects that meet minimum affordable housing requirements to exceed normally allowable density by 70 percent and normally allowable floor area ratio by 50 percent.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
