Just south of Olympic Boulevard, wood framing has reached its peak at the site of a new multifamily residential development in Pico-Union.

The project, which broke ground just over one year ago at 1047-1053 S. Fedora Street, consists of a six-story building which will feature 50 apartments - including five extremely low-income affordable units - above parking for 23 vehicles.

Project entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives, permitting a larger development than allowed by zoning rules. The bonus floor area is permitted due to the inclusion of on-site affordable units, as well as proximity to high-frequency bus lines.

Ferrier Architecture Studio is designing the Fedora apartment complex, which will feature a paseo above its second floor and a rooftop garden. Renderings show an exterior of black and red stucco, with an exposed staircase facing Fedora Street.

City records list the owner of the project site, formerly improved with two single-family homes, as local physician Joe Englanoff.

The project site sits one block east of Mariposa Avenue, where construction was recently completed for an affordable and permanent supportive housing complex from West Hollywood Community Housing Corp.
