A mixed-use development featuring multifamily housing and ground-floor retail space could replace a small commercial building in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood.

The project, slated for a property at 1415-1429 S Robertson Boulevard, would replace a single-story structure which dates to the 1930s.  A permit filing with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety describes the proposed development as a seven-story edifice featuring 65 apartments above ground-floor retail space and a single level of basement parking.

Due to its location within walking distance of high-frequency bus lines on nearby Pico Boulevard, the project is eligible for Transit Oriented Communities incentives, which provide relief from certain zoning rules.  A portion of the proposed apartments would be set aside as affordable housing in exchange for the development incentives.

Property records list the owner of the site as the Batmanghelich Trust.  The land sold for approximately $1.27 million in 2004.

The development site sits directly across the street from a property located at 1434-1456 S. Robertson Boulevard, where investor Dan Harkham plans to build a 136-room hotel.

Just around the block on at 8862 W. Pico Boulevard, completion is nearing for a 48-unit senior affordable housing development.
