Ten months after our last update, the latest mixed-use development from Amplify Development Co. and Core Spaces has reached its top floor a few blocks north of USC.

Hub LA Figueroa, located at 2722 S. Figueroa Street in University Park, consists of a seven-story building which will feature 157 studio, one, two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom apartments above 5,128 square feet of ground-floor retail and a semi-subterranean parking garage.

Project entitlements relied on Transit Oriented Communities development incentives, allowing a larger, denser development than zoning rules would otherwise permit. In exchange Amplify and Core Spaces are required to set aside 18 of the new apartments as deed-restricted very low-income housing. Seven additional apartments will also be set aside voluntarily as workforce housing.

The project site is located just under one mile north of the intersection of Figueroa and 38th Street, where the same project team has built a similar mixed-use complex featuring 79 apartments above 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. That development, like its counterpart to the north, is expected to cater to students at nearby USC.

Core Spaces is also behind a 359-unit development at 2601 E. Chapman Avenue in Fullerton.
