Golshan Properties, the company behind a recent blitz of proposals for affordable housing using the Mayor's Executive Directive 1, is at it again in Gramercy Park.

According to a notice released in late June, Golshan's latest project would rise from a property located at 8111 S. Western Avenue, replacing a vacant single-story commercial building. In its place, plans call for the construction of a new four-story, approximately 54-foot-tall building featuring 46 apartments - including 10 very low-income units, 35 low-income units, and one market-rate manager's unit.

The approximately 21,600-square-foot building is not proposed with on-site vehicle parking, citing AB 2345 and AB 2097.

Golshan, in addition to its new Gramercy Park development, has also pitched affordable housing for sites located in Boyle Heights, Pico-Union, and Mid-City.

The proposed development would rise along a stretch of Western Avenue which has recently attracted some interest from both developers of market-rate and affordable housing. Not far to the south at 87th Street, up to 168 affordable units are planned for a currently vacant lot. A smaller 24-unit market-rate building with retail is also planned midway between 91st and 92nd Streets.
