A recycling center and small residential building in Highland Park could make way for a mixed-use development featuring condominiums and pedestrian-oriented commercial space.

The project, which was filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles, would rise at the southeast corner of North Figueroa Street and Pasadena Avenue.  Plans call for the construction of a seven-story, podium-type building that would contain 100 residential units atop ground floor commercial space and a 99-car garage.  City records also indicate that the proposed development would incorporate common amenity spaces such as a pool and a roof deck.

Property records list the roughly 36,000-square-foot site's owner as an entity known as FDZ Partners, LLC.

The development, which would rise midway between the Gold Line's Highland Park and Heritage Square stations, is the second mixed-use project announced for the surrounding neighborhood in recent months.  A 43,000-square-foot live/work campus is in the planning stages at 6040 N. Figueroa Street.

The neighborhood is also home to a number of small lot housing projects.
