INGLEWOOD, Calif. (2UrbanGirls) A new mixed-use development is under consideration in Inglewood at the corner of LaBrea and Kelso.
The project was an item considered during the Inglewood Planning Commission’s Nov. 1 meeting.
The proposed project from Los Angeles-based developer Uncommon, and designed by JZA Architects, is slated to be erected cross from the Inglewood Transit Center as part of the City’s transit oriented development.
The construction will consist of new four- and eight-story buildings featuring a combined total of 143 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above 18,000 square feet of commercial uses and parking for 224 vehicles.
The developers are requesting project entitlements which include density bonuses permitting waivers from certain zoning rules. In exchange, the City of Inglewood would require that 18 of the new apartments be set aside for rent as affordable housing.
Located in the historic core of downtown Inglewood, this proposed eight story, mixed use development is designed with the unique qualities of the site and neighborhood in mind. The project seeks to link together important nodes within the downtown Inglewood fabric, including Inglewood High School and Grevillea Art Park to the west, and Market Street to the East.
The building would be located on one of Inglewood’s predominant thoroughfare to the North and South. Initiatives outlined in the New Downtown Fairview Heights TOD will afford increased access to bike lanes, parks, public amenities, and public transportation.
The residential portion of the project consists of over 143 apartment units, BBQ areas, fire pits, plantings with native landscape features, and a gym. The 5th floor roof deck includes a pool and spa with sunset views overlooking the city to the west. Amenity spaces on the highest floor are covered by a sawtooth roof that lends a unique profile to the skyline of the neighborhood.
Design and entitlements are on-going with construction projected to start in August 2024.
