A new affordable housing project has been proposed for development at 1412 North Mariposa Avenue in East Hollywood, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the construction of a new six-story building offering apartments for rent at affordable rates. Plans call for the demolition of an existing single-family residence on the site that was built n the 1920s.
PAX Urban Partners is the project developer. JZA Architecture is responsible for the designs.
The project calls for the construction of a new six-story apartment building spanning an area of 20,000-square feet. The building will offer 73 apartment units at affordable rents, designed as a mix of studio apartments. The project does not propose any on-site parking.
Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives to permit a larger structure than normally allowed by zoning rules, as well as the use of the Mayor’s Executive Directive 1 to expedite processing with the Planning Department. The project is eligible for the incentives by setting aside all but two apartments for rent by low-income and moderate-income households.
Renderings showcase a contemporary low-rise structure. The project site sits south of Sunset Boulevard. A project application has been submitted to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning, awaiting review and approval. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
