One block north of Olympic Boulevard in Koreatown, the site of a trio of recently-demolished buildings is up for redevelopment with a large apartment complex.
On September 29, the applicant Reza Moalej of 951 Berendo, LLC submitted an application to the L.A. Department of City Planning seeking approvals for the construction of a new eight-story, 77-unit apartment complex at 951 S. Berendo Street. The project would include a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings above parking for 122 vehicles.
Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities incentives in order to permit a larger building than would normally be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, eight of the proposed apartments as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.
Corbel Architects is designing the project, which is depicted in a rendering as a contemporary podium-type building. Plans call for parking at grade and on the building's second floor, as well as amenities including outdoor decks on the 3rd and 7th floors.
The proposed project is a near twin to a similar eight-story, 77-unit development planned across the street at 950 S. Berendo Street by Grubb Properties. Those developments sit just north of the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Vermont Avenue, where Grubb has planned an even larger mixed-use project with 228 dwellings above a Target market.
