New residential developments are springing up all along the future Crenshaw/LAX Line. The latest proposed project is a five-story apartment building near Hyde Park Station containing 63 units, outdoor amenities, a commissioned mural and ground-floor restaurant space. 

An application for 3475 Slauson Avenue was submitted to Los Angeles City Planning last week by Elan & Ayla Qozb, LLC. The site is currently occupied by an auto repair shop and a single-family home, which would be demolished to make way for 52 market-rate and 11 affordable units.

Floorplans would include 36 studios, 23 one-bedroom units, three two-bedroom units and one three-bedroom unit, ranging from 316 to 849 square feet. Just over half of the apartments would provide private balconies measuring 50 square feet. The complex would also include a lobby, leasing office, fifth-floor roof deck and a sprawling rooftop terrace. 

Due to 3475 Slauson Avenue’s proximity to transit, only 27 vehicle parking spaces and 61 bicycle parking spaces would be provided. The developer is seeking Transit Oriented Communities incentives, including a height limit increase, open space reduction, and a decrease in side and rear yard setbacks.

The project was designed by the Inglewood-based architecture firm AERO Collective. The building would be clad with metal siding, brick and plaster with black-framed windows and doors. Balconies would feature coordinating metal guardrails and a mural would span the full height of the eastern façade.

Situated at the corner of Slauson and Brynhurst Avenue, the proposed development would be a mere four-minute walk from Hyde Park Station, plus several restaurants, grocery stores, Crenshaw Plaza Center and View Park Preparatory High School.
