A vacant lot in Hyde Park could be developed with housing and ground-floor commercial space, according to an application submitted last week to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The quarter-acre property, located at 6325 S. Crenshaw Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a four-story building featuring 30 apartments with 424 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Plans call for five apartments to be set aside as very low-income affordable housing, which would allow for Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives including a height increase to 58 feet, and reductions to required on-site open space and side-yard setbacks.

Property records list the owner of the development site as Hatem Jurdi of Sherman Oaks.  The project's case filing states its applicant as Mid-Cities Engineering.

The development site is located roughly a half-mile south of the Crenshaw/LAX Line's Hyde Park Station at Slauson Avenue.

The project is one of several mixed-use buildings slated for the Crenshaw corridor, including a proposed modular affordable housing complex a block south at Hyde Park Boulevard.
