A 1920s triplex in Echo Park could make way for a mixed-use apartment building, according to an application recently filed with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The proposed development, slated for a property located at 1449-1451 Echo Park Avenue, calls for the construction of a four-story building featuring 27 apartments - including three reserved for very low-income households - atop 210 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 24-car subterranean parking garage.

Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities incentives allowing for increased height and reductions to normally-required side-yard setbacks.

City records list the project applicant as Los Angeles-based Kenihan Development.  The developer's past projects include a similar multifamily residential development in Del Rey.

Kenihan's project follows a similar mixed-use building now under construction a short distance north at the intersection of Echo Park Avenue and Grafton Street.
