ELYSIAN VALLEY — Restrictions on development adopted last year by the city reduced the maximum height of new buildings to no more than 30 feet on some properties near the L.A River. But those projects that include affordable housing can in some cases rise above the adopted limits, which is the case of a 30-unit small-lot housing development proposed for the 3022 N. Coolidge Street.
An entity known as Frogtown Village LLC has filed paper work with the Planning Department to subdivide the property into 30 home sites, with two of the units designated as affordable. The developer is seeking permission to push the height limit to 36 feet and wants to exceed the density limits, too.
The new building and development restrictions were imposed after residents expressed concern about gentrification and over development in the community. The restrictions apply primarily to numerous commercial properties that are located roughly between Blake Street and the L.A. River.
The Coolidge Avenue project is being managed by Modative, an architecture firm that has designed several small-lot developments. Under the city’s small-lot development ordinance, developers can construct single-family homes on lots as small as 600 square-feet.
The Eastsider has contacted Modative for more information about the project.
