Earlier this year, Haroni Investments obtained entitlements for the construction of a five-story, apartment building at the corner of 65th Place and Normandie Avenue in South Los Angeles.  Now, it seems that the developer has rethought its plans, and has submitted a new application for a larger residential complex.

According to an entitlement application filed yesterday with the Planning Department, Haroni now intends to redevelop the single-family dwelling and commercial building at 6550-6570 S. Normandie Avenue with a 93-unit apartment complex - a sharp increase from the earlier proposal for a 64-unit building.

The proposed development would employ Transit Oriented Communities incentives allowing for a reduction in yards and open space, as well as an increased in height.

Additional details, including the amount of affordable housing to be provided in the new project, are not stated in its case filing.

Haroni has a handful of large apartment buildings in pre-development across South Los Angeles, including a proposed 93-unit complex on Hoover Street, a 128-unit complex on Florence Avenue, and a mixed-use structure on Crenshaw Boulevard.

The developer is currently in build out on a 75-unit apartment complex just south of the Crenshaw/LAX Line's future Hyde Park Station.
