The project, which comes from Affordable Housing CDC, would replace a trio of small apartment buildings at 2745-2759 W. Francis Avenue. Plans call for the construction of a multi-story edifice containing 64 apartments - including 63 units for low-income seniors - utilizing Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives allowing for reductions in required open space and setbacks.
The City Of Los Angeles has earmarked $6.6 in Measure HHH funds for the proposed project, which has a total estimated cost of $30.8 million. It is among the final developments to be funded via the Citywide bond measure.
Just west of the project site, work is now underway at a six-story market-rate development featuring 50 apartments.
Two blocks north on Leeward Avenue, construction recently began for another market-rate housing development.
