Via Eastsider LA comes news that shovels will hit the dirt this month for Mosaic, an 18 unit Eagle Rock development formerly known as the 19 unit Ellenwood (and with an odd True Blood connection--the show burned the property's old cottages down onscreen). Original developers Heyday Partnership pictured a modern, minimalist design for the small lot subdivision project (the city's Small Lot ordinance allows for a lot of small, detached units on one large lot).
After they sold the project to national builder Pulte Homes, the development morphed into a townhousey (but still detached), Spanish-style project and one unit was axed. According to Pulte, the new plan calls for three-story houses with "up to 4 bedrooms, two-car direct access garages, and spacious kitchens." The Eagle Rock Association has endorsed the new design more heartily than the previous incarnation. The ERA liked that the new design was set farther back from the street and included more personal outdoor space. Units are expected to start at $500k.
