A duplex and a single-family home located a short walk south of Metro's Expo/Sepulveda Station in Rancho Park could make way for a new multifamily-residential complex, per an application submitted this month to the L.A. Department of City Planning.

Los Angeles-based Tripalink, best known for co-living apartments catering to students near USC, is the applicant behind the proposed project at 2580 S. Sepulveda Boulevard, which calls for the construction of a six-story edifice featuring 20 residential units above parking for 19 vehicles at the ground floor. Floor plans show large apartments with at least six bedrooms, similar to other Tripalink developments.

Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit taller, denser apartment building than zoning rules would otherwise allow. In exchange, three of the new units would be set aside for rent as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level for a period of 55 years.

JPark Architects is designing the apartment complex, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary podium-type building named "Mira." Plans show an exterior of smooth plaster, as well as amenities such as recreation rooms, a gym, and a rooftop deck.

The project is one of a handful built near Expo/Sepulveda Station since its debut more than a decade ago, highlighted by the 595-unit Linea complex which replaced a cement plant. More recently, the City of Los Angeles has approved the construction of a 43-unit apartment complex one block south of the Tripalink site at 2600 S. Sepulveda Boulevard.
