The United Neighborhoods Neighborhood Council will take a closer look at a proposed seven-story, mixed-use development near Expo/Crenshaw station. On Wednesday, June 3rd, the Planning and Zoning Committee will listen to a presentation on 3510-3522 South Crenshaw Boulevard before opening the floor to discussion and taking action on the project. The public can join the 7pm PT meeting using Zoom.
The site, which is currently occupied by an auto shop, falls within the boundaries of the Crenshaw Corridor Specific Plan and thus is subject to a thorough review. The plan is intended to increase density and prioritize a healthy built environment.
The development in question calls for 81 apartments, 3,885 square feet of ground-floor retail and 34 subterranean parking spaces. Nine units would be reserved for extremely low-income tenants.
There would be a mix of junior one-bedroom, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom dwellings. More than half of the residences would feature private, semi-recessed balconies, but additional open spaces would be provided via a central courtyard and spacious roof deck.
Design studio 64North realized the architecture, interior design, branding, lighting and landscape design for the proposed complex. The exterior would be clad in fiber cement boards and wood-like panels, accented with black-framed windows and painted metal guardrails.
This would be the first project in Los Angeles for DC-based RSE Capital. The company is an affiliate of Fundrise, a crowdfunding real estate investment platform. The applicants are seeking Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) incentives due to the development’s proximity to the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line, which is scheduled to open in 2021.
