Developers filed for five projects under 50 units each in Los Angeles last week.
If completed, the apartment buildings would add 120 units to the city’s housing stock. Three out of the five projects include affordable housing components and request density bonuses, while four of them were filed through the city’s Transit Oriented Communities program.
955 S. Ardmore Avenue | Koreatown | 34 units
Developer Sohrab Danialian is working on securing approvals to build a 34-unit apartment complex in Koreatown. The Transit Oriented Communities project would include demolishing an existing residential building to construct a new six-story building. Three units would be set aside for extremely low-income residents. Danialian purchased the site, at 955 South Ardmore Avenue, for about $1 million in 2017.
1444 S. Rexford Drive | Pico-Robertson | 29 units
A pair of developers are looking to build a small multifamily complex at 1444 South Rexford Drive. Morad and Farahnaz Harouni are behind the project, which would deliver 29 units in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood. There would be three affordable units at the five-story property. The developers are requesting Tier 3 incentives for the TOC project.
1825 N. New Hampshire Avenue | Los Feliz | 21 units
Taylor Equities, acting through an LLC, filed for plans to build a 21-unit building in Los Feliz.
