Three-and-a-half years after a false start, new plans have emerged for a mixed-use development near the intersection of Temple Street and Glendale Boulevard.
The project, which would replace a parking lot and single-story commercial building at 1614-1626 W. Temple Street, calls for the construction of a six-story edifice featuring 72 apartments - including seven extremely low-income affordable units - atop 700 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and 72 parking stalls.
Entitlements filed for the property include Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives, allowing for a larger project than the five-story, 55-unit apartment complex previously slated for the site. The earlier iteration of the development was slated to begin work in 2016.
The property is being developed by Downtown-based Olive Hill Group. Renderings posted to the company's website depict the project as a contemporary low-rise structure with an elevated courtyard exposed to the street.
The development site is located just south of the Hollywood Freeway and Echo Park lake.
