Dorset Village is slated for a mass redevelopment project with an expected completeion of 2024. The eight acre sight is proposed to host a total of 782 residential units reserved as low-, very low-, and extremely low-income affordable housing. The project would consist of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments – ranging in size from 576 square feet to 1,472 square feet.
The Village was built in the 1940s at 3100 W. Slauson Avenue, as of garden style apartment complex consisting of 206 residential units in 26 two-story buildings. An application submitted by Greene to the Planning Department in May 2019 calls for razing all existing structures on the eight-acre site, making way for the construction of 782 residential units in a series of buildings standing as tall as seven stories.
The on-site subsidized housing, as well as the property’s proximity to a Crenshaw/LAX Line station a block west, would make the project eligible for Transit Oriented Communities development incentives, allowing for increased height and density.
Greene is also planning up to 700 structured parking spaces and nearly 87,000 square feet of open space in the form of a large courtyard, a swimming pool, a recreation center, a sand volleyball court, outdoor basketball courts, and a community pocket park.
