A new rendering offers a first look at plans for a new affordable housing complex just south of Downtown Los Angeles from Hollywood Community Housing Corp.

The Peak Plaza apartments, planned for a property at 306 E. Washington Boulevard in Historic South-Central, calls for the construction of a new seven-story building which would feature 104 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above 1,581 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and ground-level parking for 53 vehicles.

FSY Architects is designing the proposed development, which would sit midway between the A Line's Grand/LATTC and San Pedro Stations.

"The seven-story building incorporates community spaces oriented to take in breathtaking views of the city and the San Gabriel mountains," reads a narrative released in the FSY newsletter. Additionally, the design integrates common spaces into the building façade which faces the critical east-west artery of Washington Blvd. Amenities include a commercial space at the first level, a children's play area, a dog park, indoor and outdoor community spaces and basement resident parking."

Peak Plaza was one of five projects in Los Angeles County which were recently awarded funding through the California Strategic Growth Council's Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities program. Hollywood Community Housing was granted $34.5 million for the project, a total which will also help cover the cost of a new east-west bikeway, sidewalk reconstruction, and improvements to nearby bus lanes.

The proposed development would rise next door to a site at 220 E. Washington Boulevard where AMCAL recently built a similar 105-unit affordable housing complex.
