The Chesterfield apartments, which replaced a surface parking lot at the northwest corner of 48th Street and Normandie Avenue in Vermont Square, consists of a five-story building which will feature 43 studio and one-bedroom apartments above a small at-grade parking garage for four vehicles.

According to a 2020 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, rents for the income-restricted units are to be set at $548 per month.

Abode Communities is designing the Chesterfield, which has an exterior of thin brick and stucco. The building will include open spaces such as a community room and a rooftop deck.

At the time of the project's groundbreaking, R.D. Olson Construction estimated that the Chesterfield would be completed in the second quarter of 2022.
