Killefer Flammang Architects has announced the completion of Paloma Terrace, a new affordable housing complex by the Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF Housing).  The four-story building, located at 5000 S. Main Street in South Los Angeles, features 59 residential units reserved for low-income families.

Paloma Terrace sits directly across the street from Broadwood  Terrace, an 89-unit sister facility which opened in 2015.  The two properties arrive just as RHF - one of the nation's largest nonprofit providers of housing for older adults - celebrates its 55th anniversary.

The massing of the building, which was designed by Killefer Flammang Architects, is broken down into a series of vertical elements, with exterior materials such as wood siding, trespa panels and stucco.  A break in its façade opens a central courtyard to the outside community.  The courtyard includes an oval-shaped green space, a large playground and a barbeque area.

The project has been designed to qualify for LEED Platinum certification.

Proposed Small Lot Development Near Barnsdall Park Faces Appeal

Plans call for 18 small lot homes on Hollywood Boulevard.

On July 24, the Central Area Planning Commission is scheduled to consider an appeal of a proposed small lot subdivision across the street from Barnsdall Park. The project, located at 4765-4773 Hollywood Boulevard, calls for demolishing an existing commercial building and parking lot to make way for the construction of 18 single-family residences.  The three-story buildings would offer floor plans between 1,794 and 2,969 square feet, each featuring a two-car garage.
