Architectural plans posted by the Wilshire Center Koreatown Neighborhood Council provide a first look at plans for a new housing development near the intersection of Ardmore and San Marino Avenues.
The proposed development, submitted to the City of Los Angeles for approvals in January 2020, would rise from two parcels at 927-933 S. Ardmore Avenue. Plans call for razing a single-family home and an eight-unit apartment building to make way for the construction of a seven-story edifice containing 54 studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings atop semi-subterranean parking for 27 vehicles.
In exchange for Transit Oriented Communities development incentives, project applicant Sevvo Holdings, Inc. proposes to set aside a total of six apartments for extremely low-income households. This would allow for a reduction to required side- and rear-yard setbacks, as well as on-site open space.
Corbel Architects is designing the building, which would use upper level terraces to create amenity decks for residents on its sixth and roof levels. Architectural plans show an exterior of cement plaster.
The development site is located one block north of the intersection of Ardmore and Olympic Boulevard, where developer Jamison Services, Inc. completed the 30Sixty apartments in 2018.
Two blocks north, a handful of similar multifamily residential developments are proposed for properties lining 8th Street.
