A new affordable housing project has been proposed at 569-571 West 6th Street in San Pedro. The project proposal includes the development of a four-story residential complex. Plans call for the demolition of a small restaurant and an optometrist’s office on the site.
SoLa Impact is the project developer. Breen Engineering is managing the design concepts and construction.
The project will bring 48 apartments to a four-story structure. The residences will be offered as a mix of studios and one-bedroom apartments. All the apartments will be reserved for households earning at or below 30 percent of the area’s median income.
Renderings reveal a low-rise building designed in contemporary styles.
SoLa Impact is developing the apartment complex following the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines, which incentivize affordable housing developments on properties near transit. The incentives used for the 6th Street development will include an allowance to build housing without on-site parking.
The project broke ground earlier this year. A similar project recently broke ground a few blocks away. The under-construction project sits directly across the street from a currently empty lot where 1010 Development Corp. is planning a five-story, 49-unit permanent supportive housing complex using Measure HHH funding.
