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.
