Located on 31st Street between Figueroa and Flower Street, the project will eventually stand seven stories in height, offering 73 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above 78 vehicles. Plans call for a total of eight affordable units, priced at the very low- and moderate-income levels.
HBA Architects is designing by Fig 31, which will be clad in red brick - a signature of nearby USC. The project will offer various on-site amenities, highlighted by a rooftop deck.
The apartments will be marketed to students, according to the Canfield website, with capacity for up to 187 people.
The project, located a short walk from Metro's Jefferson/USC Station, is on pace for completion in 2021.
Not far south at 38th and Figueroa Streets, construction recently began for a similar development targeted at USC students. That project will feature 71 apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail space.
A block west of Fig 31, the 1960s Vagabond Inn is slated to make way for a seven-story, 275-room hotel.
