Another live/work development is planned in Frogtown, per a case filing with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The latest project, slated for a nearly one-acre site at 1901 W. Blake Avenue, calls for the construction of a 41-foot-tall building featuring 53 residential units above one level of subterranean parking.  The project would set aside 11 percent of its units for very low income households in exchange for requested density bonus incentives.

Frogtown, located along the western bank of the L.A. River, has seen a number of small lot and multi-family residential developments of this variety over the past several years.

A few blocks north on Allesandro Street, construction is now wrapping up for a new riverfront campus featuring live/work apartments and commercial space.

A short distance south along Blake Avenue, a larger development is in the works that would create 117 residential units, offices, shops and restaurants.

The 1901 Blake Avenue site is located directly across the L.A. River from the massive Taylor Yard property, which is being restored as green space through the an ambitious revitalization project.  A proposed $19-million bridge is expected to connect Frogtown to the park by 2019.
