A 1920s single-family home located just south of Sunset Boulevard in East Hollywood could make way for new affordable housing, per an application submitted recently to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
The proposed project from PAX Urban Partners, slated for a property at 1412 N. Mariposa Avenue, calls for the construction of a new six-story, approximately 20,000-square-foot building which would feature 73 studio apartments in a building without on-site parking.
Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives to permit a larger structure than normally allowed by zoning rules, as well as the use of the Mayor's Executive Directive 1 to expedite processing with the Planning Department. The project is eligible for the incentives by setting aside all but two apartments for rent by low- and moderate-income households.
JZA Architecture is designing 1412 Mariposa, which is portrayed in renderings as a contemporary low-rise structure.
The proposed project is the second recent development from PAX Urban Partners in the neighborhood. The Santa Monica-based firm is also building a 62-unit apartment complex a few blocks to the east on New Hampshire Avenue.
The development site also sits a short walk south from a now-vacant property at Mariposa's intersection with Sunset Boulevard, where a mixed-use project featuring 40 apartments and ground-floor commercial space is now in the works.
