A pair of 1940s structures near the K Line in Hyde Park are slated to be razed and redevelopment with affordable housing for seniors, per an application submitted in early January to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Culver City-based non-profit Affordable Living for the Aging is making use of streamlined entitlement procedures created through Executive Directive 1 for the project, which would rise form a corner lot at 5879 S. Crenshaw Boulevard. Plans call for razing the existing buildings, which house an auto repair garage, to clear the way for a new four-story building featuring 25 one- and two-bedroom apartments.

As with other ED1 projects, the proposed apartment complex is eligible for density bonus incentives permitting a larger structure than allowed by zoning rules, as it would serve lower-income renters.

EWAI is designing the contemporary low-rise complex, which would include a central courtyard.

The project is the latest in a series of developments which have reshaped the Crenshaw Boulevard corridor since the arrival of the K Line. Several of those developments have also been affordable housing, including the Depot at Hyde Park and the Hope on Hyde Park apartments a few blocks to the south.
