Located at 4242 Crenshaw Boulevard, the project will eventually consist of a five-story building featuring 124 apartments and 6,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Parking for 60 vehicles will be located in a street-level garage.

Plans call for a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom floor plans, 14 of which will be set aside as very low-income affordable housing in exchange for density bonus incentives permitting a larger structure than otherwise allowed by zoning rules.

Stanley Saitowitz is designing 4242 Crenshaw, which is split into seven blocks which are differentiated by red and white coloring.  Plans call for a large amenity deck spanning across the building's roof level.
