On a cul-de-sac just north of Temple Street in Historic Filipinotown, a 1930s triplex is poised to make way for a larger multifamily residential development.

The project, slated for a property located just south of the US-101 Freeway at 326 N. Robinson Street, comes from a North Hollywood-based entity called DHR Properties, LLC, which is managed by Dovid Hirsch. Plans call for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 20 one- and two-bedroom apartments above an at-grade parking garage with 19 vehicle stalls.

Hirsch is seeking the approval of Transit Oriented Communities incentives for relief from zoning rules relative to floor area, height, density, and automobile parking, in exchange for the provision of on-site affordable housing. A total of three deed-restricted low-income units are proposed at 326 Robinson, replacing the three rent-stabilized units that are to be redeveloped.

Local architecture firm Aaron Brumer & Associates is designing 326 Robinson, which is depicted in renderings as a boxy low-rise building clad in corrugated metal siding, concrete, and painted stucco. Balconies wrap the building, with additional common open space provided through a rooftop deck.

The project, which abuts a new development of small lot homes, also neighbors a handful of larger multifamily buildings now taking shape on Temple Street, including a permanent supportive housing complex from LINC Housing Corp. and a 221-unit market-rate building rising at the former site of Temple Community Hospital.
