A proposed mixed-use development featuring affordable housing and community-serving commercial uses in Lincoln Heights has cleared the Los Angeles City Planning Commission.
The project, which was approved without discussion as part of the Commission's consent calendar, would rise from a property at 3000 N. Main Street. Culver City-based developer Decro Corp. is seeking approvals to construct a mixed-use complex consisting of 97 apartments - including affordable and permanent supportive units - with nearly 72,000 square feet of commercial uses dedicated to medical offices, a medical clinic, and a market.
The apartments would come in a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom floor plans, reserved for populations including very low- and extremely low-income households, as well as transitional aged youth, survivors of domestic violence, seniors, and veterans.
Togawa Smith Martin is designing the five-story development, which will be accompanied by three preserved single-family dwellings which date to the early 20th century.
Decro Corp. has secured financing for the project through the New Generation Fund and Measure HHH, according to an announcement distributed in April 2019.
The project, which was previously anticipated to break ground this year, is named "The Brine," in honor of the longtime occupant of the development site - the A 1 Eastern Homemade Pickle Company.
The property is located just west of Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center, where the facility's historic general hospital building is also being considered for a conversion into affordable or supportive housing.
