A small shopping center near Metro's Expo/Sepulveda Station will soon give way for a multifamily residential development, per an initial study published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

In late 2015, developer 11460 Gateway, LLC submitted an application to construct a ground-up development at the corner of Pico and Gateway Boulevards.  City records describe a five-story building, featuring 129 dwelling units above two levels of underground parking.  Plans call for a mixture of studio, one- and two-bedroom units, including 115 apartments for very low income households and nearly 18,000 square feet of open space and amenities.

Plans for a ground-floor retail component appear to have been abandoned, based on the environmental documents.

The proposed development is being designed by local architect David Forbes Hibbert, whose past incredits include Koreatown's K2LA.  Renderings of the 11460 Gateway Project portray a contemporary low-rise building clad with plaster, glass and trespa panels.

Construction is anticipated to occur over 20 months, starting in early 2018 and finishing by early 2020.

The project is one of a handful surrounding Expo/Sepulveda Station, highlighted by the Casden West L.A. development.
