A collection of small buildings in Hyde Park could make way for a multifamily residential development, according to plans submitted yesterday to the City of Los Angeles.
The project, slated for an approximately half-acre site at 5909-5915 S. Crenshaw Boulevard, calls for replacing two single-family dwellings, a duplex, and commercial space with a 65-unit apartment complex - including 10 units that would be priced for very low-income households.
Though the property's base zoning would allow for a building up to 60 feet in height, the project's affordable housing component makes it eligible for Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives. Applicant ABY Holdings, LLC has requested an increase in height, relief from transitional height requirements adjacent to an R1 zone, and a reduction in required on-site open space.
Architecture and land use consulting firm The Code Solution is serving as the applicant's representative.
Additional details are unclear based on the project's case filing.
The proposed development is planned just south of the Crenshaw/LAX Line's Hyde Park Station, which is under construction at the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue. A handful of affordable and market-rate developments are already under construction along the corridor, and may be followed by a 782-unit project at the site of Dorset Village, a 1940s garden apartment complex.
