Seven-story, 45-unit building planned for K-Town


A six-unit building in the Koreatown completed in the early 1920s could be razed to pave the way for larger multi-family residential development, according to an application submitted to the Los Angeles Department of Planning.

The proposed development, planned for a single parcel located at 832 S. Kenmore Avenue, calls for the construction of a new seven-story building comprising 45 bachelor, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and 23 basement parking spaces.

The requested rights include Incentives for Transit-Oriented Communities allowing for greater floor area and density, as well as reducing required setbacks. In exchange, five of the new apartments would be set aside as affordable housing at the extremely low income level.

City records list the project team as DCX Ventures, a local real estate development company run by a director of Archeon Group, who designs the project. The architectural plans describe a contemporary podium-type building topped with a terrace on the roof.

DCX and Archeon are also at the origin of the projects of a similar multi-family residential complex near the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Normandy Avenue.
