A pair of single-family dwellings between the US-101 Freeway and Santa Monica Boulevard in East Hollywood could make way for affordable housing, per an application submitted recently to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
The proposed project, filed by an entity affiliated with Los Angeles-based Luxe Capital, would rise from a mid-block parcel located at 1020 N. Ardmore Avenue. Plans call for razing both existing structures to clear the way for a new four-story building featuring 52 studio and one-bedroom apartments without on-site parking.
The entitlement application was submitted to the Planning Department using the streamlined processing created through the Mayor's Executive Directive 1. The project also relies on density bonus incentives to allow for a larger building than normally permitted by zoning rules.
HRD Architecture is designing the project, according to plans included with the application.
The proposed development is not the first to take advantage of the provisions of ED1 in East Hollywood. Three blocks to the east along Santa Monica Boulevard, a recently-completed development opened ahead of schedule thanks for the executive directive.
