Torti Gallas + Partners has unveiled a rendering for the PATH Villas South Gate, a new affordable housing complex planned near the L.A. River.

The project, which would rise at 5610 Imperial Highway in the City of South Gate, calls for the construction of a four-story building featuring 60 studio and one-bedroom apartments for veterans and formerly homeless individuals.

Renderings portray a contemporary low-rise structure, accented with metal panels.

Developer PATH Ventures is currently in the midst of construction on similar affordable housing projects in Rampart Village and Inglewood, and has plans for another ground-up development in Hollywood.

The South Gate development was recently included as one of nine affordable housing projects - creating over 550 residential units - that were approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors last week.

Small Apartment Building Slated for Crescent Heights Boulevard

Three-story, 12-unit building would rise on two parcels.

Last week, the City of West Hollywood's Design Review Subcommittee considered a proposal to construct a small apartment building on two parcels at 1011 and 1015 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard.

The project, which is being designed by Culver City-based architecture firm Modative, calls for the construction of a three-story, 12-unit building featuring 20 parking spaces.  Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings, including one unit of affordable housing.
