A developer has increased the number of residential units at a planned mixed-use development in Arlington Heights, hoping to take advantage of Los Angeles’ program that provides incentives to boost affordable housing.

Temple LLC, connected to an individual named Daniel J. Gerlach, filed plans for a 30-unit building at 1917 S. Western Avenue. The six-story building would be 44,100 square feet with ground floor commercial space.

Gerlach is seeking density bonuses via the city’s Transit-Oriented Communities program. The developer would set aside three units for “extremely low-income.”

Gerlach, who is connected to a handful of other LLCs, purchased the property in April 2014 for $795,000 and filed permits for a 22-unit building in 2017. The lot is 12,800 square feet.

Dozens of developers have sought to add more units through the city’s TOC program, which went into effect last fall. The program has led to the planning of more than 1,000 affordable units around the city.

The Arlington Heights property is vacant and is zoned to allow for both commercial and residential development. Property records show it was once home to a restaurant built in the 1950s.

Less than away, developer Sentinel Peak Resources is in the process of cleaning up a former natural gas drilling site for an affordable housing complex. Safety concerns have raised concern.
