A year-and-a-half after quietly starting work, a new multifamily residential building from Los Angeles-based development firm Goodson Real Estate is starting to take shape in Pico-Union.

The project, located on a site at 1124-1138 S. Normandie Avenue, replaced smaller buildings featuring seven residential units with a new development that will consist of a five-story edifice containing 84 studio and one-bedroom apartments above semi-subterranean parking for 42 vehicles.

Project entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, permitting greater height, density, and floor area than would typically be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, eight of the apartments are to be set aside as for rent as deed-restricted affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Bittoni Architects is designing 1124 S. Normandie Avenue, which is portrayed in renderings as a contemporary podium-type building. Per a landing page on the firm's website, the apartment complex will include common spaces and an open corridor.

Several affordable and supportive housing developments are in the works for the surrounding area, including a proposed 75-unit building a block south near Pico Boulevard and a 41-unit project rising a block east on Mariposa Avenue.
