An automobile repair shop in the Adams-Normandie neighborhood could make way for new housing from Tripalink, per an application submitted last month to the L.A. Department of City Planning.

The proposed project, which would rise from a corner parcel located at 1500 W. Adams Boulevard, calls for the construction of a new four-story building which would feature 16 three-bedroom apartments atop ground-floor parking for eight vehicles.

Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, potentially allowing a larger building than zoning rules would normally permit. In exchange, two of the new apartments would be set aside for rent as deed-restricted affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Next Architecture is designing 1500 W. Adams Boulevard, which is shown in plans with an exterior of brick veneer and painted plaster. Plans also show a rooftop amenity space for residents.

The proposed project sits directly across Catalina Avenue from a similar 15-unit apartment complex which was recently completed, and within a short walk of larger mixed-use and multifamily developments which are completed or proposed at 1421 and 1742 W. Adams Boulevard.

Tripalink, in addition to its new project on Adams, is also behind proposed and under-construction developments on Exposition Boulevard in University Park and Sepulveda Boulevard in Rancho Park.
