A city-owned parcel located at the intersection of 94th Street and Broadway in South Los Angeles is set to be sold and redeveloped with mixed-income housing, commercial uses, and a new community garden, according to plans new filings and permit records.
The long-vacant property, which sits at the southeast corner of the intersection, is the former site of the Broadway Hospital, which closed in 1988 and was subsequently demolished. While portions of the land have been slated for redevelopment at various points over the past last three decades, no project has come to fruition.
That has changed as of 2020, when 94B, LLC, an entity linked to Los Angeles-based planning and architecture firm Archeon Group, secured approvals to build a mixed-use project featuring up to 180 apartments, nearly 41,000 square feet of commercial space, and parking for 257 vehicles. Additionally, a portion of the lot fronting the intersection of 94th and Spring Streets would be converted into a community garden.
Approved plans rely on density bonus incentives to achieve the proposed floor area. In exchange for the development incentive, 20 of the new studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments would bet set aside as very low-income affordable housing for a period of 55 years.
The new commercial space, according to plans previously submitted to the city for review, is intended to house a grocery store.
Morphosis, which is months removed from the debut of OCMA in Costa Mesa, is designing Broadway & 94th, which would include an L-shaped, seven-story apartment block and a standalone retail building fronting Broadway. The two structures, clad in fiber cement boards, metal, and screens, would wrap around a central courtyard, with additional open space to be provided through a community room and a gym.
The project site, according to permit filings, is to be sold to 94B, LLC to facilitate the construction of the new apartment building.
