A nearly century-old warehouse in the Arts District may be converted into live/work apartments, according to plans submitted yesterday to the City of Los Angeles.

The six-story building, constructed in 1924, is located on a nearly one-acre site at 1340 E. 6th Street.  According to the project's case filing with the Planning Department, the proposed changes include transforming its interior into 193 live/work apartments.  At the completion of work, the building would have eight habitable floors.

Additional details regarding the proposed development are currently unclear.

The proposed adaptive reuse project sits directly between two future Arts District landmarks: the new Sixth Street Viaduct to the east, and the $2-billion 6AM development to the west.
