An auto repair shop near the Crenshaw/LAX Line's Hyde Park Station could make way for apartments.
The project, according to the agenda of the August 17 meeting of the Park Mesa Heights Neighborhood Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee, would rise from a corner site located at 3475 W. Slauson Avenue. Plans call for clearing the site to make way for the construction of a five-story, 60-foot-tall building featuring 63 apartments - including seven extremely low-income units - above ground-floor commercial space.
A project description indicates that the proposed apartment building would include a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings with parking for 27 vehicles and 61 bicycles. Nearly 5,000 square feet of common open space is planned, including a community room, a rooftop deck, and a garden.
The contemporary low-rise development is being designed by Inglewood-based architecture firm Aero Collective, according to documents submitted to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
Los Angeles County Assessor records list the owner of the site as the Westwood-based entity Elan & Ayla QOZB, LLC.
The development site follows several additional proposals for market-rate and affordable housing projects in close proximity to Hyde Park Station, including a controversial plan to redevelop the Dorset Village garden apartment complex.
