A pair of new residential projects planned for Chinatown could bring 70 new apartments to the neighborhood.

Plans filed with the city on Tuesday call for the construction of a six-story apartment building with 33 units at 708 South New Depot Street. Three of those units will be set aside for very low-income tenants.

As Urbanize LA reports, a neighboring project is already being planned by the same developer, Bunker Heights, LLC. The five-story building, which is set to rise from a vacant lot at 849 North Bunker Hill Ave, would include 37 units (two of which will be reserved for very low-income tenants).

The two structures are being designed by Labyrinth Design Studio with a wavy, stacked blocks aesthetic and plenty of balcony space.

Chinatown hasn’t seen the kind of development that has transformed adjacent Downtown neighborhoods in recent years, but a few new projects have been announced in the area within the last year. They include a Johnson Fain-designed mixed use development and a glassy, millennial-oriented project near the Gold Line.
