An early 20th century home in Van Nuys could make way for new affordable housing, according to an application submitted earlier this month to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Tru Residential, the applicant behind the project at 14568 Gilmore Street, is seeking entitlements to raze the existing 109-year-old structure to clear the way for a new four-story building featuring 46 residential units.

The project, which was submitted for approvals through the process created through the Mayor's Executive Directive 1, would include a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments reserved for low- and moderate-income households.

JZA Architecture is designing 14568 Gilmore, which is depicted in a rendering as a contemporary low-rise structure clad in fiber cement panels and stucco.

The project site is located two blocks west of the commercial corridor of Van Nuys Boulevard, which has recently seen the addition of several larger mixed-use projects. That includes a 174-unit complex now taking shape at the intersection of Van Nuys and Kittridge Street.
