The new development, located just east of the Los Angeles River at 215-217 N. San Fernando Road, will consist of a five-story building featuring 81 live/work apartments above a single-story podium containing at-grade parking.
Tighe Architecture is designing the project, which is depicted in renderings and a flythrough video as a contemporary low-rise structure accented with metal panels. A second-level setback along the building's southern property line will be used to provide an amenity deck for use by residents.
Other members of the project team include engineering firm Kim & Associates.
The apartment complex is one of only a handful of ground-up developments entitled under the Cornfield-Arroyo Specific Plan, which sets zoning and land use rules for the River-adjacent areas in Lincoln Heights and Chinatown. Construction is already underway for one other project across the street - a housing and hotel complex which is also being built by 4Site.
