Three-and-a-half years after breaking ground in Historic Filipinotown, Trammell Crow Residential has completed construction of Alexan Bahay.

The mixed-use development, located at 1910 Temple Street, consists of a six-story building featuring 200 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments in addition to 22,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and parking.


The contemporary low-rise structure, which consists of five levels of wood-frame construction above a concrete podium, includes a central courtyard, a swimming pool, a fitness center, and a lounge.

A leasing website advertises monthly rents between $2,130 and $4,335.

Alexan Bahay, which is named for the Tagalog word for "home," replaced a building that was once home to the L.A. Derby Dolls women's roller derby league.

The project was previously slated to be accompanied by a four-story, 46-unit affordable housing complex on an adjacent lot.  Plans were recently revealed for a smaller supportive housing development from two different entities on the opposite side of Temple Street.

Other proposed developments in the near vicinity include a market-rate apartment building slated for nearby Alvarado Street.

Dallas, Texas-based Trammell Crow Residential is also developing a similar multifamily housing project in Monrovia and is planning a multi-phase complex in Long Beach which could include the that city's tallest building.
