A mobile home park on a busy corridor in Harbor City could be destined for redevelopment, according to an application submitted earlier this month to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
Per a case filing, real estate development firm Red Oak Investments is pursuing entitlements to clear the A-1 Trailer Par located at 1280 Pacific Coast Highway to enable the construction of a new mixed-use apartment complex featuring 354 residential units and approximately 1,500 square feet of street-fronting commercial space, wrapping a central parking garage with space for 575 vehicles.
Requested entitlements, which will be subject to approval by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission, include density bonus incentives which would require setting aside 42 of the proposed studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing at the very low-income level. The new income-restricted units would offset the 42 existing mobile homes that would be displaced by construction.
VTBS Architects is designing the proposed development, named 1280 PCH for its address, which is depicted in elevation plans as a contemporary structure ranging between four and six stories in height. The complex is organized around two central courtyards, with two smaller spaces built into the east and west facades. Plans also call for a small roof terrace overlooking Pacific Coast Highway.
Red Oak Investments, which is based in Irvine, lists a number of similar projects among its past portfolio on its website.
