The team that built the 159-unit The Fowler apartments at Fifth and Broad streets that opened in March now is in the initial phases of adding a companion mixed-use housing project one block over.
LocalConstruct of Los Angeles on May 29 applied for a zoning change to build a seven- or eight-story apartment project now called The Cartee with structure parking at Fourth and Broad streets. The application cites “a very similar use” to the Fowler, which has apartments and a street-level coffee shop and pizza restaurant.
LocalConstruct is asking to change the R-ODD residential office zoning to C-5DD central business zoning.
The Cartee, like the Fowler, would have a garage within the building and the building right up to the sidewalk “to create a contemporary urban experience downtown,” LocalConstruct director of construction Patrick Boel wrote in the application.
