An Orange County non-profit organization has filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to construct new affordable housing on the border between Westlake and Koreatown.

The project, which comes from Affordable Housing CDC, would replace a trio of small apartment buildings at 2745-2759 W. Francis Avenue.  Plans call for the construction of a multi-story edifice containing 64 apartments - including 63 units for low-income seniors - utilizing Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives allowing for reductions in required open space and setbacks.

The City Of Los Angeles has earmarked $6.6 in Measure HHH funds for the proposed project, which has a total estimated cost of $30.8 million.  It is among the final developments to be funded via the Citywide bond measure.

Just west of the project site, work is now underway at a six-story market-rate development featuring 50 apartments.

Two blocks north on Leeward Avenue, construction recently began for another market-rate housing development.
