A pair of early 20th century buildings located just south of MacArthur Park could be replaced with an apartment complex, according to plans submitted recently to the City of Los Angeles.
The property, located at 924-930 S. Park View Street, is currently improved with a single-family home and a duplex which date to 1909 and 1910 respectively. Plans filed by an entity called KLAP, LLC call for razing both structures to make way for a six-story building containing 65 apartments atop a parking garage.
Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives allowing for reductions to normally-required on-site open space and side yards. The project applicant would set aside an unspecified number of apartments as affordable housing in exchange for the relief from zoning restrictions.
City records list the project's representative as architecture firm KSK Design.
In addition to MacArthur Park, the project site is located two blocks south of a vacant lot at the intersection of 8th and Park View Streets, where a six-story apartment building with retail is planned.
Another property owner, Braum Real Estate, recently initiated entitlements for a 138-unit apartment building at the intersection of Park View and 10th Street.
