A block west of the USC campus in Exposition Park, a single-family home and a duplex are poised to make way for a larger multifamily residential development.

Recently, an application was filed with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning to raze the existing structures located at 1177 W. 37th Place in order to redevelop the site with a five-story, eight-unit apartment building. Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings - one of which is being added to the property as an accessory dwelling unit.

Requested entitlements filed by applicant Qi Sun through the entity 1177 37th Pl, LLC include Transit Oriented Incentives to achieve greater density than allowed by the property's zoning, as well as a reduction in required on-site automobile parking to seven stalls. One apartment would be set aside as affordable housing at the very low-income level in exchange for the incentives.

Los Angeles-based California Development & Design, Inc. is the architect for the project, which is portrayed in renderings as a boxy low-rise structure capped with an amenity deck.

The proposed project is among a handful of small, infill projects in the works within walking distance of the USC campus, including a similar seven-story apartment building slated to replace a single-family home a block south on 37th Drive.
