A new affordable housing project has been proposed for development at 2481 South Sawtelle Boulevard in Sawtelle, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the construction of a six-story building offering housing units at affordable rates. Plans call for the demolition of a multi-family residential building built in the 1940s.
Sawtelle 2481, LLC is listed as the project applicant. Mika Design Group is responsible for the designs.
The project will be developed through Mayor’s Executive Directive 1. The scope of work includes the construction of a new six-story building offering 42 dwelling units at affordable rates. The units will be designed as one-bedroom and two-bedroom floors. Parking for eight vehicles and four bike storage spaces will also be designed on the site.
The building will rise to a height of 67 feet and span an area of 24,597 square feet. Renderings reveal a contemporary low-rise structure.
The project developer will utilize density bonus incentives to permit a larger building than allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, the all apartments would be set aside for low- and moderate-income households.
The project site is located near Metro’s Expo/Sepulveda Station; future residents will be a short-walk away.
