Nearly six years after the project was approved by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission, plans to build housing and commercial space are finally moving forward at Eagle Rock's notorious Pillarhenge lot.

Work commenced earlier this year at the long dormant site at 1332 Colorado Boulevard, which is named for its array of protruding concrete pillars - a relic of a never-finished Great Recession-era development. General Procurement, Inc., owner of the property since 2016, has secured approvals for the construction of a new four-story building featuring 31 apartments above a podium structure featuring commercial space and parking.

Originally a density bonus entitlement, the project is has since been retooled using Transit Oriented Communities incentives to allow relief from certain zoning rules and requirements. In exchange, three of the residential units are set aside for rent by extremely low-income households.

Vanos Architects is designing 1332 Colorado, which will include common open spaces such as a roof deck and at the back of the property.

The Los Angeles Times reports that neighbors have taken to describing the project as the "Love Boat" due to its ship-like appearance.

Completion of the apartment complex is expected in roughly two years.
