A 1920s single-family home in South Los Angeles could make way for an income-restricted apartment complex, per an application submitted this week to the L.A. Department of City Planning.

Elevation plan for 5607 S Main StreetMetropolis Architecture

The proposed project, slated for a single parcel located at 5607 S. Main Street, comes from an entity called Main St. Towers LLC, an affiliate of Beverly Hills-based real estate firm Parklane Properties, Inc. Plans call for razing the existing two-bedroom dwelling, clearing the way for a new four-story structure featuring 26 studio and one-bedroom apartments reserved for low- and extremely low-income renters.

Using Transit Oriented Communities incentives, the project would be entitled to greater height, density, and floor area than normally allowed by zoning rules. Additionally, the applicant has proposed no on-site parking.

Metropolis Architecture is designing 5607 Main, which is depicted in plans as a contemporary low-rise structure clad in painted stucco. In addition to housing, plans call for amenities at the ground floor, including a community room and a gym, as well as a rooftop deck.
