At the northeast corner of 8th Street and Serrano Avenue in Koreatown, the wrapping is off at yet another mixed-use apartment complex from prolific local developer Jamison Services, Inc.

The Roya apartments, which replaced a surface parking lot at 760 S. Serrano Avenue, consists of a six-story building which will feature 157 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments and 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space upon completion. Plans also call for 96 parking spaces in a two-level subterranean garage beneath the building.

Jamison entitled the property for development using Transit Oriented Communities incentives, allowing a larger structure than zoning rules would otherwise permit. In exchange, 16 of the apartments will be reserved as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.
