Plans submitted last month to the City of Los Angeles signal the potential redevelopment of four parcels in the Pico-Union neighborhood.
The project applicant - an entity affiliated with developer Zackary Brothers - is seeking entitlements to raze two single-family homes and two small apartment buildings at 1017-1031 S. Mariposa Avenue with a six-story structure featuring 100 studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings above a two-level, 136-car subterranean parking garage.
City records also indicate that an attorney affiliated with Jamison Services, Inc. is consulting for the proposed apartment complex.
Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives, permitting a larger building than would otherwise be permitted by the property's base zoning. A project application indicates that 10 apartments would be set aside for lower-income renters.
The development includes 10 apartments which were vacated via the Ellis Act in 2019, according to Housing Department records.
Architectural plans included with the entitlement submittal show a contemporary podium-type building with a U-shaped footprint. Proposed amenities would include a business center, a gym, a courtyard swimming pool, and a rooftop deck.
The development site is surrounding by a slew of similar multifamily housing projects, including a mixed-use project one block north on Olympic Boulevard and a supportive housing complex slated for a City-owned property a short distance south.
The developer, Zackary Brothers, is also in the midst of construction at a similar apartment complex with Jamison Services in the West Los Angeles neighborhood.
