Just over one year after clearing the Los Angeles City Council, construction is in progress for a new multifamily residential development just south of Olympic Boulevard in Pico-Union.

The project, now taking shape at 1047-1053 S. Fedora Street, will consist of a six-story edifice featuring 50 apartments - including five extremely low-income affordable units - above parking for 23 vehicles.

Designed by Ferrier Architecture Studio the apartment complex will be a podium-type structure with a paseo above its second floor and a rooftop garden.  Plans call for an exterior of black and red stucco, with an exposed staircase facing Fedora Street.

City records list the project applicant as local physician Joe Englanoff.
