Earlier today, the Department of City Planning published an application from the West Los Angeles-based firm seeking the approval of entitlements for a new six-story, 67-unit apartment complex at 946-962 S. Lake Street. The proposed project would also include parking for 52 vehicles in a semi-subterranean garage.
Safco's request entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives permitting increased density and floor area relative to zoning rules for the property, as well as reductions to required on-site open space, vehicle parking, and setbacks. Seven of the new apartments would be set aside as deed-restricted extremely low-income affordable housing in exchange for the incentives.
The Albert Group Architects is designing the Lake Street development, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary stucco-clad building, similar to other recent developments in the Westlake and Pico-Union neighborhoods. Proposed common amenities include a rooftop terrace.
