Architectural plans posted by the Wilshire Center Koreatown Neighborhood Council reveal plans to redevelop two century-old buildings with a larger apartment complex.

The project, slated to replace a triplex and a fourplex at 944-952 S. Dewey Avenue, calls for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 51 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above semi-subterranean parking for 32 vehicles.

Plans call for six units of deed-restricted extremely low-income housing, making the project eligible for Transit Oriented Communities development incentives allowing for increased density and height beyond zoning limits, as well as reductions to required on-site open space and building setbacks.

Andmore Partners is designing the contemporary podium-type building clad in white stucco and corrugated red metal.  A setback carved into the fifth floor of the project would be used to provide a courtyard for residents.

City records list the project entity as the Los Angeles-based entity RKC Dewey, LLC.

The development site is located one block east of Kenmore Avenue, where Jamison Services, Inc. recently completed construction of a similar apartment complex.
