Architecture firm Clark and Hedrick are behind this
Last September, some Trojans were bemoaning the closure of the Chevron gas station at the corner of Figueroa Street and Exposition Boulevard, site of a forthcoming private housing project by developer ICON. Well, behold a rendering of that project, which broke ground yesterday. What's coming: 56 apartment units in a six-story building (five floor of residential and one of street level retail, and all over 3 levels of below grade parking.) No word yet on prices for these rentals (Trojans also like to bemoan the lack of affordable housing around USC.) The press release from Suffolk Construction, the contractor on the jobs, states there isn't enough student housing in the area. From the release: "This new facility is being developed in response to the significant shortage of on and off campus housing resulting in students being forced to find housing further from campus. Surveys conducted of USC students and their parents indicate that the number one complaint about USC was the lack of safe, high quality, affordable housing near campus." Agree, Trojans?
