West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation is planning a new affordable housing development at the border between Pico-Union and Koreatown.
The project, filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles, calls for the construction of a six-story building at 1035 S. Berendo Street, featuring 41 restricted affordable apartments and one manager's unit above parking for 16 vehicles. The proposed development site is currently a vacant lot.
WHCHC is pursuing entitlements through the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines, and are requesting a 40 percent density bonus, as well as reductions in required open space and rear and side yards.
Additional details regarding the project are currently unclear.
WHCHC's other projects in the Pico-Union neighborhood include the 40-unit Vermont Manzanita development, which was completed in 2015, and the 93-unit Westmore-Linden apartments, which are currently under construction.
