An auto repair shop and two small commercial buildings in West Adams could make way for a mixed-use apartment building, according to plans filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed development, slated for an approximately 24,000-square-foot site at 3702-3716 W. Jefferson Boulevard, calls for the construction of a four-story building featuring 60 residential apartments - including six affordable units - with 5,900 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities incentives allowing for increases to density and floor area, and reductions to required parking and setbacks.

City records list the applicant behind the project as Branmark Group.

The proposed development would rise just west of the intersection of Jefferson and Crenshaw Boulevard, where a five-story, 49-unit affordable housing project was recently completed.  Both sites sit just northwest of Metro's Expo/Crenshaw Station.
