Two single-family homes in Koreatown have been cleared away for the construction of a multifamily residential development.

The site, located at 719-723 S. St. Andrews Place, has been approved for the construction of a six-story, 65-unit apartment complex with basement parking.  Plans call for a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings with amenities such as a fitness center and a pool lounge according to the website of architecture firm Andmore Partners, which is designing the project.

Applicant Modern Development Expert, Inc. originally sought approvals for a base density development featuring 52 apartments, but later revised entitlements by tapping Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives.  To obtain approvals for the larger project, a total of seven apartments are to be set priced for renters at the extremely low-income level.

Additional details regarding the project are unclear.

The project site is located a block west of a 160-unit development now being built by Jamison Services, Inc. near the intersection of 7th Street and Western Avenue.
