A long-vacant lot in Highland Park could see new affordable housing via the Mayor's Executive Directive 1, per an application submitted last month to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Elevation for 5326 N. Figueroa StreetAaron Brumer & Associates

The proposed project, filed by applicant Henry Chen of Side Hustle Holdings, LLC, would rise from a roughly 19,500-square-foot property at 5326 N. Figueroa Street. Plans call for the construction of a new four-story building featuring studio and one-bedroom apartments.

Requested density bonus incentives for the project include allowances for greater height and density, as well as permission to provide no on-site automobile parking. The property, located within a half-mile of the A Line's Highland Park Station, is already eligible for AB 2097.

Aaron Brumer & Associates is designing 5326 Figueroa, which is depicted in a rendering as a contemporary low-rise development.
