The project, now under construction at the northwest corner of 8th Street and Valencia Avenue, is rising from an approximately 15,000-square-foot site that was previously improved with a 1920s brick commercial building. The new building will contain a total of 60 residential units with ground-floor retail space and parking.
Tighe Architecture's design for the apartment complex calls for a single-story structure facing 8th Street, with a taller five-story mass pushed back toward the northern property line. Renderings depict a blue-and-white structure with a podium-level amenity deck.
4Site Real Estate, which acquired the development site in 2019, is also developing several other multifamily and mixed-use projects in Central Los Angeles, including a hotel-and-residential complex in Lincoln Heights and an 81-unit apartment building on San Fernando Road. Those projects are also designed by Tighe.
The 8th and Valencia site sits on the same block as Aria, a permanent supportive housing development recently built by Affirmed Housing Group.
