The construction of SoLa Impacts’ 4008 MLK Boulevard mixed-use apartment project has officially broken ground in Los Angeles. The development will be a five-story building with 35 parking spaces and 437 square feet of street-level shop space. Additionally, it will have 70 studio and one-bedroom units.

Project entitlements rely on the development incentives provided by TOCs to approve a taller, denser building than would otherwise be permitted by zoning regulations. Seven of the brand-new units will be reserved as homes for those with extremely low incomes in return.
SoLa Impacts’ 4008 MLK Boulevard mixed-use apartment, which will have four stories of wood construction over a concrete podium, is being designed by The Architects Collective. The finished product is shown in renderings to have a modern appearance. Furthermore, it has amenity spaces with rooftop and second-floor decks.
SoLa Impacts’ 4008 MLK Boulevard mixed-use apartment, a sign of good things for the host region
The project could be a sign of things to come in the neighborhood. There was recently approval of a plan to expand the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza Mall with new housing and commercial space. Another project is also in the works that could bring offices and retail to the long-vacant Marlton Square site.
These proposed construction projects come after the K-Line of Metro recently opened, which has a stop close to the mall. A new Crenshaw/LAX Station is currently being built at the intersection of Crenshaw and MLK Boulevards.
Although SoLa Impacts’ 4008 MLK Boulevard mixed-use apartment is taller than its close neighbors, it would be a relatively small fry in comparison to some of the other sizable mixed-use projects planned for the neighborhood to the east. This neighborhood will be served by this station.
