ECHO PARK — The surge of residential development in Echo Park now appears to be flowing in the direction of Alvarado Street, where a 34-unit multifamily project is now in the works for the busy street. The development would be the largest residential project built on this stretch of Alvarado since a 20-unit apartment building was completed five years ago.
A company known as Alvarado Property Partners is seeking city permission to build a project that is taller and more dense than what could normally be allowed on two lots at 712 & 706 N. Alvarado Street, according to a Planning Department case summary. Alvarado Property Partners purchased the two lots, one of which contains a small bungalow, for about $1 million in May, according to Property Shark.
The Eastsider has contacted the architecture firm working on the project, KTGY Group, for more details. The same firm designed a large, senior apartment building on Glendale Boulevard near Echo Park Lake.
