An empty lot near the intersection of 4th and Soto Streets in Boyle Heights is slated for a new affordable housing complex through Executive Directive 1, per an application submitted recently to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Elevation plans for 2330 E. 3rd StreetMetropolis Architecture

The proposed project at 2330 E. 3rd Street, filed by Terra Capital, LLC would rise from a corner property located at 3rd Street's intersection with Soto. Plans call for the construction of a new four-story building which would feature 53 studio and one-bedroom apartments without automobile parking.

According to findings included with the application, the apartments would be set aside for rent by moderate, low-, and very low-income households. As a 100 percent affordable development, the project would be eligible for incentives permitting a larger building than normally allowed by zoning rules.

Metropolis Architecture is designing the apartment complex, which is depicted in plans as a contemporary low-rise building.

The project is one of a handful of new ED1 projects in the works for Boyle Heights, joining a similar low-rise development proposed at 121 N. Mathews Street and a larger 10-story development on Cesar E. Chavez Avenue which could include an art museum.
