Modular Affordable Housing Project Moves Forward at 5th & San Pedro
Downtown’s historic Hotel Barclay, the oldest continually operating hotel in Los Angeles, is poised for a boutique makeover by local real estate development firm Relevant Group. But before that can happen, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission must review plans for replacing single-room occupancy apartments currently contained within the late 19th century structure.
Steinberg Hart is designing the boxy 95-foot-tall building, which would offer an interior courtyard and a rooftop deck for the use of residents. The structure would be built entirely from prefabricated modular units – an increasingly popular building form in Los Angeles.
