A development team has submitted plans for a five-story condominium project in South Los Angeles, adding more new units to this rapidly changing neighborhood.
The latest proposal comes from an entity called 6319 Brynhurst Avenue, which aims to create a transit-oriented community project in the city’s Hyde Park neighbourhood, south of Leimert Park and northeast of Inglewood. The entity is managed by Farbod Shadpour, Joel Davidson and Seyedali Alyassin.
The full plan has yet to be registered with the Los Angeles City Planning Department, but the developer envisions a five-story, 50-unit apartment complex to replace two smaller apartment buildings. The project will also include some affordable housing under the city’s popular TOC program, which provides density and other zoning incentives for projects close to public transit.
The project entity purchased the quarter-acre site in early 2022 for $1.2 million and secured about $1 million in financing, according to property records.
The five-story project will tower above much of the surrounding neighborhood (mostly single-family homes) and adds to the years-long trend that has been growing in this large swath of South Los Angeles
The leader of this trend is the Shaul Kuba’s CIM Teamwhich is simultaneously building dozens of projects in and around West Adams, has sparked both excitement and gentrification concerns.

This month, South Los Angeles lead developer SoLa Impact, submitted plan A large TOC project on Crenshaw Avenue approximately three miles north of the Bringhurst site.
