A 1920s commercial building in Central-Alameda is up for redevelopment with housing, according to an application submitted earlier this week to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The proposed development, submitted by applicant Chris Limon for a site at 4820 S. Central Avenue, calls for razing the existing improvements - consisting of just shy of 2,000 square feet of commercial space - to make way for the construction of a new five-story building featuring 25 apartments. No on-site parking is proposed.

Requested entitlements include Transit Oriented Communities incentives which would permit a larger structure than otherwise permitted by zoning rules. In exchange, two of the new apartments would be set aside for rent as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Plans show that Corbel Architects is designing 4820 Central, which is depicted in a rendering as a contemporary low-rise structure.

The existing building last sold in 2016, according to city records.
