The Crenshaw Line’s route to the airport continues to draw attention from developers looking to add housing along the way.
A filing with the department of city planning published Thursday shows that developer Axiom Real Estate Investments wants to build a five-story apartment project on Stocker Street at Crenshaw Boulevard.
The project site is just south of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza mall and the future Martin Luther King Jr. stop on the Crenshaw/LAX line.
The Aximon project would bring 69 apartments—six of them for tenants with very low incomes—and 52 parking spaces to 3600 Stocker Street.
Axiom is also planning another project nearby at 3831 Stocker Street that would bring 127 apartments to a hillside site, according to its website.
Farther south on Crenshaw, the city is looking to redevelop a pair of parking lots near the future Leimert Park station on the Crenshaw Line, possibly with housing, and a private developer is planning to replace a car dealership with 111 residential units.
The priciest development around, though, is the one planned for the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza. Owner Capri Capital Partners want to overhaul the property and create mixed-use complex with 961 new condos and apartments, a 400-room hotel, and new offices, restaurants, and retail space.
The $700 million reboot of the site won City Council approval in 2018, but the project proved divisive for the neighborhood, with many supporters seeing the revamp as a massive investment in the neighborhood and opponents wondering if current residents would be able to afford rents in the area long enough to reap any of the benefits.
