A staff report to the Los Angeles Board of Recreation and Parks Commissioners gives a sneak preview of plans for a mixed-use affordable housing development in Historic South-Central.

The proposed project, slated to rise at the southeast corner of Washington Boulevard and Los Angeles Street, would replace a small apartment building and multiple warehouses with a five-story structure containing 105 residential units atop 7,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 75 basement parking spaces. 

The mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units will be reserved for low-income families, special needs persons, and transition aged youth.

VTBS Architects is designing the contemporary low-rise structure, which would include a community room, a central courtyard, and a street-fronting public plaza.  Architectural plans show an exterior of grey, white, and olive-colored stucco and fiber cement panels.

Agoura Hills-based AMCAL Multi-Housing Company initiated an entitlement application for the Washington and Los Angeles Street apartment complex more than two years ago, and has since sought a variety of state and federal funding sources for the development.

The company is also developing affordable housing in Long Beach and Pomona.
