Just northeast of Metro's Soto Station in Boyle Heights, a century-old duplex is up for redevelopment with affordable housing through the Mayor's Executive Directive 1.

The project, submitted to the Planning Department for review in late September, would rise from a property located at 121 N. Mathews Street. Plans call for the construction of a new four-story building featuring 40 one- and two-bedroom apartments without on-site parking.

According to plans included with the case filing, the project would cater to households at the low- and moderate-income levels.

Ken Stockton Architects is designing the building, named 40 Mathews, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary low-rise structure clad in stucco and horizontal siding.

City records list the applicant behind the project as Tommy Beadel.

The project, which sits just over one block east of Metro's Soto Station, joins a handful of new affordable and supportive housing projects built in the near vicinity - including the under-construction Los Lirios apartments directly above the station. It is also not the first in the neighborhood to make use of Executive Directive 1 - a similar 51-unit development is planned for a site just south along 1st Street.
