The project, called the Fairview Heights Apartments, is rising from a Los Angeles County-owned site at 923 E. Redondo Boulevard - across the street from the Crenshaw/LAX Line's new Fairview Heights station. The four-story development will offer 101 apartments for low-income and formerly homeless persons atop 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
The housing complex is being designed by a team which includes KFA Architecture and Yale Lir Landscape Architects, and is depicted in a rendering with a Spanish Colonial Revival aesthetic. Two buildings will flank a public plaza lined by kiosks and art. Landscaped courtyards are planned for the second floor of each building.
The $53-million development will offer rents as low at $545 per month, according to a staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee.
The development site will be located just east of Inglewood's Edward Vincent Jr. Boulevard, and will serve as an anchor of a new pedestrian plaza planned for Redondo Boulevard.
Completion of construction is expected in Fall 2021.
The project is one of several new affordable and supportive housing developments planned near stations on the Crenshaw/LAX Line, which is now scheduled to begin service in 2021.
