Construction crews are currently in the process of building a subterranean parking garage for a large residential complex that stretches for about 450 feet along the Los Angeles River in Elysian Valley.
The developer is building 56 apartments in a trio of three-story buildings at the northern end of Ripple Place next to the 2 Freeway, according to building permits. The Eastsider has contacted Scott Anastasi Realty for more details on the project.
The project represents the single largest residential development in Elysian Valley in decades. Elysian Valley, a primarily working-class community wedged between the river and the 5 Freeway, has attracted more attention in recent years as artists and designers have set up offices, studios and homes in former commercial buildings near the river.
