A new affordable housing has been proposed to be developed at 1023 North Berendo Street in East Hollywood, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the construction of a new six-story building offering residential units at affordable rates, along with onsite parking and amenities.
Uncommon Developers is the project developer. JZA Architecture is responsible for the designs.
Earlier in 2022, the developer had submitted redevelopment proposal through the Transit Oriented Communities incentives. Now, the project proposal seeks permission for constructing affordable housing through the Mayor’s Executive Directive 1. The previous proposal included a five-story building with 69 residential units, eight affordable units, and 36 parking spaces.
The new proposal includes a larger project; a six-story building featuring 131 residential units at affordable rates. The units will be designed as a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom floor plans. Parking for 33 vehicles will be provided. The revised project will also be a 100 percent affordable development, reserved exclusively for very low-income, low-income, and moderate-income households.
Renderings reveal a contemporary low-rise development. The project site is located west of Metro’s Vermont/Santa Monica Station. A project application has been submitted, seeking review and approval. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
