A vacant lot near L.A. County + USC Medical Center could yield a mixed-use development, per an application filed recently with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The project, slated for a roughly half-acre site at 1016-1030 N. State Street, calls for the construction of a multi-story building featuring 85 apartments -including an unspecified number of affordable units - and 6,554 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  

The applicant, listed as the Youssefian Family Trust, acquired the now-vacant site in 2017 for approximately $1.57 million, according to city records.

The project's case filing lists its representative and architect as Santa Monica-based architecture firm SSP Studio.  Renderings from the company's website depict the proposed development a contemporary six-story edifice.

The development site sits just one block west of the El Monte Busway's LA County + USC Medical Center Station, and a block south of the hospital complex of the same name.  Both USC and Los Angeles County currently have several large projects in development at the campus, including new medical facilities, a hotel, and student housing.
