An empty lot near the intersection 11th Street and Union Avenue in Pico-Union could yield new affordable housing, according to an application submitted last month the L.A. Department of City Planning.

The proposed project, which would rise from a single parcel located at 1604 W. 11th Street, calls for the construction of a four-story building featuring 31 studio and one-bedroom apartments without on-site parking.

Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives, which the project is eligible for, as it would set aside all apartments for rent by low- and very low-income households.

Metropolis Architecture is designing the low-rise building, which is intended to mimic the appearance of older structures within the Pico-Union Historic Preservation Overlay Zone.

The project is the latest in a string of new developments from Golshan Properties seeking to build mid-sized affordable apartments buildings across Los Angeles, including new develompent slated for Broadway-Manchester and South Park.
