Located in Pico Union neighborhood in Central Los Angeles, the new contemporary-styled Magnolia multi-family apartments projects transform existing single-family homes into a total of 57-unit apartment complexes for all prospective residents, including low-income residents. In addition, both projects provide more residential units by using TOC Base incentives, which is an essential aspect that fulfills the current lack of housing units problems in Los Angeles.
The two separate 4-story apartments with subterranean parking are located on the same neighborhood block—both sitting on Magnolia Avenue. PQNK team has developed the design through multiple interplays between colors, materials, and depth to provide buildings with aesthetically pleasing looks and dynamic characters. In addition, both projects have community amenities consist of a recreation room on the ground level and a rear yard to improve the quality of social interactions among residents.
The 1238 Magnolia is a 36-unit apartment. Emphasis was placed on creating connectivity between the residents with a landscaped nature throughout the building. Two units on the ground level with a separate entrance to their unit can enjoy the outdoor living at the dedicated front yard. In addition, the courtyard located on the 2nd floor of the building serves as a central garden to the surrounding units. The landscaped rear yard will also provide residents with a peaceful natural environment.
