Koreatown's most prolific builder has set its sights on a small surface parking lot located just north of 6th Street.

This week, Jamison Services filed an application with the Planning Department seeking approvals for the construction of a new seven-story, 30-unit apartment complex at 544 S. Mariposa Avenue.

Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives to allow for a larger structure than zoning rules would otherwise permit. In exchange, three of the new one- and two-bedroom apartments would be reserved as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

DFH Architects is designing 544 Mariposa, which is portrayed in renderings as a contemporary podium-type building capped by a rooftop amenity deck.

The project is one of dozens of proposed and under-construction developments Jamison Services currently has in Koreatown and surrounding neighborhoods. The company's past work includes the nearby Maya apartments on Kingsley Drive.
