One year after our last drop-in, the curtain has lifted at a mixed-use development under construction just north of the K Line's Leimert Park Station.

The project from Greenepointe Development, located at 4242 S. Crenshaw Boulevard, consists of a five-story building that will contain a total of 124 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above 6,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space when finished. Parking for 60 vehicles will be located in a street-level garage.

Project entitlements include density bonus incentives permitting a larger structure than would otherwise be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, Greenepointe will be required to set aside 14 of the new apartments as very low-income affordable housing.

The proposed apartment complex follows several recent multifamily developments surrounding newly-opened Metro Stations at Leimert Park and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, including a modular 111-unit apartment building that opened in 2019 on an adjoining site at 4252 Crenshaw Boulevard, a proposed mixed-use development at the corner of Crenshaw and Stocker Street, and another mixed-use project now in the home stretch at 3450 W. 43rd Street. Also under construction to the south is a 195-unit apartment complex from SoLa Impact at 4611 Crenshaw.
