Site prep is underway for a new development of small lot homes in Eagle Rock, according to an image provided by photographer Michael Hayes.

The project, located at 4515 Eagle Rock Boulevard, will consist of 38 single-family residences with street-fronting retail space.  An entity attached to the development's case filing is affiliated with the real estate investment firm Encore Capital Management.

Los Angeles-based Rachel Allen Architecture is designing the small lot development in coordination with KTGY Architecture + Planning and SALT Landscape Architects.  Renderings first spotted by the Eastsider portray a mix of contemporary two- and three-story structures, many of which feature rooftop decks.

The houses will rise at the former site of the Philippine Village, a former commercial hub for the neighborhood's Filipino community.  The building was sold for $9 million in 2015, according to the Eastsider.

A similar development of small lot homes with street-facing commercial stalls was recently completed nearby near the intersection of Eagle Rock and York Boulevards.
