The Boyle Heights project was proposed earlier this year by a A Community of Friends, which would redevelop its two-story, 62-unit Las Palomas Hotel property into a new community designed by Koning Eizenberg Architecture and landscape architect Orange Street Studio.

A representative from A Community of Friends, which is a nonprofit supportive housing developer, will speak about the project during the Thursday meeting. The neighborhood council committee will follow with a discussion about the latest project renderings and a possible vote, its agenda shows.

Plans call for a rebuilt interior and additional two residential levels to the community’s total as part of about 21,000 square feet of new construction. The existing building’s brick walls facing North Chicago Street to the west and East 1st Street to the south would be preserved.

ACOF acquired and converted the property to its current use in the mid-1990s. The community holds 61 studio apartments for low-income individuals, including 50 units targeted to formerly homeless individuals experiencing mental illness.
