Plans for a mixed-use development near Southwestern Law School in Koreatown are being revised through the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines.

The new project at 2972 W. 7th Street, filed last week by an entity affiliated with developer City Century, calls for the construction a mixed-use project consisting of 228 residential units - including affordable housing - above 7,843 square feet of ground-floor commercial uses.  Using Tier III TOC incentives, the developer has requested a reduction in the amount of open space and side yards which would normally be required for the project.

Located one block south of Wilshire Boulevard, the roughly 1.2-acre property is currently improved with a parking lot and a vacant market.  The site previously received entitlements under a prior applicant - Datum Development, LLC - for the construction of a six-story building featuring 180 apartments, 15,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and basement parking for 204 vehicles.  A total of 15 units would be set aside for very-low-income households under this proposal.

Additional details regarding the project have not been announced.

One block east near the intersection of 7th and Hoover Streets, a similar mixed-use building is also approved for construction.
