The owner of a pair of commercial buildings on the Park Mesa Heights stretch of Crenshaw Boulevard has plans to replace them with a six-story, 48-unit mixed-use apartment development, according to a new planning case posted by the city of Los Angeles this week.
The proposed development is being led by Praxis Development Group alongside property owner Regenaissance LLC, which is a company led by Jamial Clark, and it would take shape at the northwestern corner of the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and West 54th Street. Designed by KFA Architecture, plans call for a 42,900-square-foot, 73-foot-tall development with a mix of mostly studio apartments through two-bedrooms and 1,224 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
The project team is seeking a 58-percent density bonus and a one-story height increase, among other approvals to develop the project as planned, according to application documents.
Six apartments would be reserved for very low-income households, plans show.
In all, the apartment community would contain 17 studio apartments at an average size of 441 square feet, 23 one-bedrooms at an average of 681 square feet, seven two-bedrooms at an average of 1,035 square feet, and one three-bedroom at 1,387 square feet.
Plans also call for about 4,000 square feet of common open space, including a rear yard, amenity room, and pair of roof decks.
The proposed development would provide 26 automobile parking spaces between at-grade and below-grade parking levels.
Project designs are also being steered by landscape architecture firm Place.
