The remnants of a single-family home and an adjoining residential structure in East Hollywood could make way for a new apartment building, according to plans posted by the Wilshire Center Koreatown Neighborhood Council.
The property, consisting of two parcels at 630-636 N. Oxford Avenue, is slated for the construction of a six-story building featuring 28 apartments and parking for 50 vehicles, based on plans filed in November 2019 with the City of Los Angeles.
Entitlements requested by the developer - Hollywood-based Schon Tepler Group - include Transit Oriented Communities incentives allowing for increased height and reductions to required rear- and side-yard setbacks. In exchange for the bonuses, the developer would be required to set aside three apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.
Sam Ghanouni is designing the proposed project, which is portrayed in a rendering as a contemporary low-rise building clad in stone and cement plaster.
The project follows on the heels of several mixed-use and multifamily residential buildings that are in development to the north along Melrose Avenue, including a 42-unit building now rising at the street's intersection with Oxford.
