Rendering: The Code Solution

A five-story mixed-use development featuring 53 apartments and a ground-floor retail space could replace a trio of residential and commercial buildings near Figueroa Street and Florence Avenue in South Los Angeles. 

The proposed project would include seven affordable units reserved for extremely low income households. There would be a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, ranging from approximately 324 to 912 square feet. A total of 33 parking spaces would be provided across the first and second floors, along with long-term storage for 64 bicycles and a repair station. 

A 777-square-foot retail space would front onto Figueroa Street, creating an opportunity for a local business or a mom-and-pop grocer, perhaps. The residential units would start on the second floor, also shared by a community room and fitness center.

There would be a series of roof decks on the fifth floor, complete with barbecues and drought-tolerant landscaping. Additional amenities would include a welcoming lobby and electric vehicle charging stations.

The apartments would feature in-suite laundry, linear or L-shaped kitchens, reach-in closets, bathtub and shower combinations, and private balconies (as per plan). An open-air, central courtyard beginning on the third floor would ensure light-filled interiors.

Calabasas-based realtor Yoav Astman is listed as the applicant. Full-service real estate development company The Code Solution designed the contemporary mid-rise, which would be clad in white, light gray and dark gray stucco, wood veneer and dark gray limestone. Balcony and roof overhangs would help to shield private outdoor spaces from the elements, while built-in planters would create privacy between neighbors.

Located at 7311-7317 South Figueroa Street, the proposed 26,123-square-foot development site is close to the 110 Freeway, Mount Carmel Recreation Center, local middle and elementary schools, and numerous fast-casual restaurants.
