A small apartment building is now under construction near a Gold Line station in Boyle Heights.

The project, located on single parcel at 130 S. Soto Street, consists of a three-story building that will feature five residential units.  The subject property was previously developed with a single-family residence and an accessory dwelling unit, both of which dated to the early 20th century.
