At its meeting on June 3, the United Neighborhoods Neighborhood Council's Planning & Zoning Committee is scheduled to review a proposed mixed-use development that in the Jefferson Park community.
The project, filed for review earlier this year with the City of Los Angeles, would rise at the northeast corner of 36th Street and Crenshaw Boulevard, replacing an auto repair shop. RSE Capital, a subsidiary of the crowdfunding real estate company Fundrise, has proposed the construction of a seven-story edifice which would contain 81 apartments atop approximately 3,900 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and subterranean parking for 34 vehicles.
Plans call for a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings, including nine to be set aside as affordable housing extremely low-income households. The on-site below market-rate units makes the project eligible for Transit Oriented Communities development incentives, including reductions to required parking and open space, as well as increases in allowable floor area, density, and building height.
Architecture firm 64North is designing the proposed building, which would use cascading setbacks on its three upper floors to create balconies for residents. Architectural plans show an exterior composed of fiber cement panels, accented with steel.
The apartment complex is slated for a property which sits one block north of Metro's Expo/Crenshaw Station, which serves passengers traveling between Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica. The at-grade stop is surrounding by several new developments, including an affordable housing complex which opened in early 2019 at 3411 Crenshaw Boulevard, as well as the Crenshaw Crossing project.
