ECHO PARK — A developer is planning to build a seven-story apartment building that would loom over neighboring homes and a new park and community garden on Patton Street.
The project at 330-322 N. Patton Street would be among the tallest apartment buildings in Echo Park, rising 81-feet, according to a summary of the Planning Department website. There’s already a tall, apartment complex on the north end of the block at Temple Street. But the new apartment building would rise in the midst of one and two-story buildings on the narrow street.
The new building, which is being developed by G Haus Properties LLC and designed by DE Architects, would be constructed on two lots, one of which contains a 1905 bungalow. In addition to 34 apartments, the building, located near Patton Street Park, would also include 48 parking spaces. An estimated 7,350 cubic yards of dirt would have to be hauled from the site, which slopes upward from Patton.
The proposed building would be much larger than surrounding structures. But the zoning in the south end of Echo Park allows for large and tall structures to be built. In some cases, there are no height limits.
