El SERENO — A developer is planning to build a 90-unit affordable housing project near Huntington Drive South and Soto Street, according to the city Planning Department. The four-story complex, which would rise next to an existing apartment development, is one of the single largest housing projects to be proposed in El Sereno in recent years.
Rosa de Castilla LP is seeking city permission to build a project that is taller and more dense than zoning laws would normally allow. The developer also wants to include less open space and seeks other exemptions in return for offering 88 of the units to low and very low income tenants, according to a Planning Department summary (the two remaining units would be for managers).
The development would consist of four, 4-story buildings, 68 parking space in an underground garage and space for social service agencies and a community room.
