Just east of the Los Angeles River in Lincoln Heights, vertical construction is progressing for a new mixed-use development from 4Site Real Estate

The project - which is located along the south side of Barranca Street between San Fernando Road and Avenue 21 - consists of a six-story building featuring 102 apartments, a 100-key hotel, and 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments - including 45 live/work units and five extremely low-income affordable units.

Tighe Architecture is designing the project, which is split into two wings intended to appear as separate buildings.  The hotel, located adjacent to San Fernando Road, will feature a jagged roofline and arched openings along its ground floor.  The housing component, located along Avenue 21, would have rounded corners and metal accents.

Proposed on-site amenities include recreation rooms, a pool deck, and a courtyard for use by hotel guests.

In addition to the Lincoln Heights project, 4Site is now in construction or predevelopment at several mixed-use and multifamily residential buildings in the Westlake neighborhood.

The new hotel and apartments are rising a few blocks south of a series of properties owned by the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation and Goodwill Southern California, which have discussed partnering on a mixed-use campus featuring offices, commercial space, and affordable housing.
