Empty lots in two of Los Angeles County's unincorporated communities could soon be redeveloped with new housing by Habitat for Humanity, according to staff reports scheduled for the September 16 meeting of the Regional Planning Commission.
The first project, slated for a .34-acre site at 63rd Street and Holmes Avenue in Florence-Firestone, calls for the construction of eight two-story townhomes arranged around a common driveway.
The project's design is described as being referential to craftsman style architecture, with A-line peaked roofs, wood siding, and front porches with columns. The homes would come in a mix of two- and three-bedroom floor plans, ranging from 1,103 to 1,295 square feet in size.
According to a staff report, the homes will be deed-restricted for sale to households earning no more than 80 percent of the area median income.
The second development, slated for a .79-acre lot at 215 E. El Segundo Boulevard in Willowbrook, would also be comprised of eight single-family dwellings.
Each of the one-story dwellings - ranging from 1,076 to 1,149 square feet in size - would include three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage. Like its sister development in Florence-Firestone, the houses are being designed in the craftsman style.
According to the staff report, sales will be deed-restricted to households earning at or below 80 and 120 percent of the area median income.
